Last night was aimWest’s “What has happened to journalism” – the refined title from “What the hell happened to journalism in the US?” – which was the working title we on the board used. In case you missed it, there will be a video released by WZZM TV 13 this Saturday – I’ll post a link when I have it. The panel discussion centered around how Social Media has affected changes in legacy or old media. Panelists included Tim Mak of Politico, from DC; Laurie Cirevello of The Rapidian, in Grand Rapids (A hyper-local publication of citizen journalists); and Stanton Tang the news director for WZZM.

If any of you were there last night, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Actually even if you weren’t there, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what the H happened to Journalism.
Ok – go.
