  1. Cronkite Night At the Movies“The Pelican Brief” At the beginning of this thrilling movie I, personally, had no idea what the connection was between this movie and journalism. As the movie progressed, though, the connection became clear. Denzel Washington’s character provided an exceptional view of what an investigative reporter does and how they provide a pivotal role to the journalism society. Although this story was based off a book, it is quite possible that something of this nature could happen in real life. This movie provides a visual of how exciting and beneficial investigative journalism can be. The loss of such in depth and accurate reporting has been slightly lost in today’s journalism market, which is quite unsettling. Although investigative reporting is expensive, the field will eventually pay itself off by providing the audience with what is needed and wanted. “The Pelican Brief” was a thrilling to watch, but most of all it placed investigative journalism in a sincere light.

  2. Tonight’s Must-See Monday was presented by Dean Callahan and hosted by Eric Newton. Eric Newton is the Senior Adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Newton discussed four main topics with the audience about the future of news and comparing it to the past. 1. He stated how we are currently living in the digital age and no one can tell how it is going to turn out. 2. Science fiction has a large impact and influence on the society of journalism. 3. Each American generation comes of age as a different news medium is rising. 4. People in their 20s play a key role in inventing new news media. Newton’s presentation went on with slides of the history of how news and technology have simultaneously developed dating back to 1767. It was interesting seeing how he tied The Jetsons having a form of Skype, Star Trek having the first “cell phone” and Space Odyssey having the first “Ipad.” He then proceeded to predict the future of technology as far as 2089 along with “World War 4.0- humans against non-humans.” Not likely, right? According to Newton, “we predict the future based on what we know.” This MSM was very interesting and definitely brought my mind to places I’d never thought of before. To sum up this great discussion, Newton ended with; “To get to this future, someone’s got to shape it, and that person is you. Is that too much to handle? I don’t think so.”

  3. Fantasies of the future have always interested people; but usually sci-fi is placed solely in the fiction section. Predicting the future seems to be becoming a more refined art and a more accurate one as well. Eric Newton struck me at first as a potential “ Trekkie,” with his sci-fi movie references and especially after seeing his entertaining graphics. But his explanations were actually logical – as history demonstrates, technology has risen exponentially and it seems as though it will continue to do so. I can certainly see this advancement pairing with medical advances and soon creating matrix-esque implants for people. They say necessity is the mother of invention, but are these “advancements” really a necessity? Only time can tell whether Newton’s predictions will come true, or whether that exponential rise skews off course due to some calamity. War can be extremely destructive, and if war turns to the technological turf, who knows what technological advances World War 3.0 could destroy. All in all, Newton provided many interesting speculations that people should take heed of because they could come true.

  4. From the invention of moveable type in 1450 creating the Mass Media Boom to the rise of the digital age with the beginning of the internet, the evolution of media grew exponentially, yet painfully slow. According to the speaker Eric Newton, each generation beginning with the Revolution has grown up with a different form of media on the rise starting with pamphlets. Along with this growth of media, there has also been a pattern of crisis and awakening approximately every 80 years. This has been shown through the Civil War, the 3rd Great Awakening and WWII. Up to that point society had generally seen no media growth other than the change from pamphlets to mainstream newspapers. With the rise of the internet beginning in the 1980’s, the pace of media growth began to increase rapidly. Our generation is currently in the social media age and could very well be undergoing what Newton refers to as the World War 3.0, an invisible war of cyber attacks. In regards to what the future holds, Newton says, “Think crazy. Not the out-of-the-box crazy, but the out-of-this-planet crazy.” After seeing that the cellphone was inspired by Star Trek, the ideas Newton proposes don’t seem so far-fetched. Newton predicts that media will transition through wearable media, intelligent media, bio media, hyper media, and ultimately omni media. This evolution, according to Newton will inevitably lead to World War 4.0, the first human vs. non-human war the world has ever seen.

  18. This Must See Monday’s Speaker Series featured Eric Newton, Senior Advisor to the President of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. He highlighted “A History of the Future of News: What 1767 Tells Us About 2110.” Newton used history to explain and predict the future for journalism. First, he stated we must accept the fact that we are in a digital age and no one knows what is going to happen next. Every generation is growing up with different forms of media. Continual technological advances create new outlets for news, making all future generations expect different things. “We predict the future based on what we know,” which is wrong because it doesn’t open up the possibility for new ideas to come. Another interesting factor in predicting the future, is looking at Science Fiction. Because this genre dreams up new possibilities, it doesn’t limit the imagination. For example, Skype, cell phones, and the iPad were all used in science fiction entertainment decades ago. What Newton predicts for the future, is that print will die, artificial intelligence and robotics will rise, and that media will become conversational. Information will become even more public and accessible to everyone. After that will follow “Bio Media”, or actual media implants that don’t require separate gadgets. “Hyper Media” will follow that with actual cranial downloads that are delivered straight into your mind. “Omni Media” finishes it off with thought projection and telepathy. This lecture was extremely thought provoking and enlightening in expanding the horizons that media will possibly one day stretch into. It is mind blowing to fathom the ideas Newton suggested, yet they are all entirely possible.

  24. This week’s Must See Monday focused on “Communities in Crisis: Ethical Considerations for Journalists.” Ina Jaffe, a national desk correspondent for NPR West and Victor Merina, senior correspondent and special projects editor for Reznet spoke about past experiences while reporting on communities in crisis. Jaffe said her first breaking news story for NPR West was about a person who brought a gun to an elementary school yard in California and opened fire on children, killing some and injuring many. She wasn’t sure how to report on the story or how to interview children who were there. Her editor told her to not interview them. She returned to the same city a year later to interview a family whose child had died in the shooting. She said you have to have patience in crisis situations, let victims come to you. Don’t force your way into a victim’s lives. Merina spoke about covering the race riots in Los Angeles and going to the funerals of many of the victims. This allowed him to get to learn about them better by talking to their families. He agreed with Jaffe and said you should let victims come to you. You have to have patience with mourning families. The question of how do you stick to deadlines was another topic brought up. Jaffe said in crisis stories, get what you need to get in the time you have to tell the story. She said one fantastic interview is better than forcing seven people to talk to you. Merina said journalists need to have respect for the people and places you visit and write about. Show humanity, these are real people. I learned that a journalist really needs to research a community before going into it and try to write a story about it. You should also really observe the scene. Make sure you don’t get too involved with a story. You need to be enough a part of a story to write a good story, but not enough where that’s all you think about and you wallow in that stories sadness.
