Computers, smart phones, the internet have all changed segments of the world in the last few years; print media and journalism have been and continue to be highly impacted. Starting from “What’s the internet?” to “It just hit Drudge” to “It’s all over YouTube!” how does journalism and politics function in a world that still requires sources to verify truth and where suddenly everyone is a journalist?
