My work involves some interesting adventures. Today I took a break from writing to head to my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I joined some fellow alums from the world of TV news to talk about the state of the media. On the panel with me were Jeff Greenfield (CBS), Chris Bury (ABC), David Tabacoff (FOX) and Peter Greenburg (CBS). We discussed the changing technology, viewer habits, new distribution systems for news, painful budget and staff cuts in the industry -- and the importance of ethic and critical thinking for journalists and viewers alike.
