From Fox News to NPR to the blogosphere and community journalism, it seems “point of view” and “voice” are morphing into “advocacy.” How does this agenda-driven news affect the original media advocates - public relations professionals? As the lines blur between “Five W” (and "One H") reporting and outright opinion, the ethical dilemmas mount for journalists and the PR people who seek their attention. Join us as a panel of experienced communications pros tackle the issue of how this changing media landscape alters the complex relationship between the public relations pro and the working journalist.
