Ms Ifill spoke about on the current state of Journalism. An interesting observation was how the huge growth in news sources intensifies the public responsibility to choose competent outlets. Ifill spoke how her experience in journalism helped her learn the difference between skepticism and cynicism. She pointed out that journalists, not just politicians, need to held responsible for what they report.

It’s late. More to come tomorrow….
