Interesting interview with Anthony De Rosa:

Through live blogging, De Rosa says he began to learn the value of information verification. Social media poses an increasingly large problem in the spreading of false or inaccurate information. Especially in times of breaking news, events unfold extremely quickly. There are many people feeding conflicting information into networks through their phones. Users blindly share information without considering the root of the source, and it spreads like wildfire.

There’s a marked difference between doing journalism with new tools, and using new tools to rethink journalism. De Rosa is making a pretty good fist of the latter right now.
