Journalism and Social Media: Video Interview

Two of Richmond’s leading bloggers, Jeff Kelley and Ian Graham, sat down at a recent Social Media Club event to talk about journalism, politics, satire, and how new media is changing the game.

From parody sites being taken too seriously to fake news items somehow ending up on major news websites, the two tackle a wide spectrum of new media and industrial media issues. They also get to chat about the legitimacy and credentials of new media journalists and how many social media users have ended up being the first to report or broadcast important news in recent months.

Graham and Kelley also take the time to discuss users’ news consumption habits online. Both men believe the traditional newspaper is facing imminent death, and each has an interesting take on what comes next.
