Journalism faces an 'existential crisis' in Trump era

By Christiane Amanpour, Chief International Correspondent, CNN

Updated 11:58 AM ET, Wed November 23, 2016 


New York (CNN)  I never in a million years thought I would be up here on stage appealing for the freedom and safety of American journalists at home.

Ladies and gentlemen, I added the bits from candidate Trump as a reminder of the peril we face.

I actually hoped that once President-elect, all that that would change, and I still do.

But I was chilled when the first tweet after the election was about "professional protesters incited by the media".

From what I can gather 'televised' Trump will be by YouTube only until his Trump TV is ready.

Interesting segment on radiolab about the future of news. The team explores new tools that can be used to edit dialog and live video much the same way as you would photoshop a picture. Check out the fake Obama press conference that they created and then check out the podcast itself.

Alternative Media is the Key. 


That's the only place you have any realistic chance of getting raw "Say it how it is" Journalism. 


And even then you have to research that "Alternative Media" Source to see if they are legit or if they are are a branch of a Main Stream Media corporation. 


I take my hat off to the legit alternative media people that put everything on the line (even their own lives) to get the TRUTH out to the public or anyone that is listening to them.
