A new study by the Pew Research Center shows that more people are getting their news from the internet than ever before.

This is not surprising news - nor does it shock that a third of cell phone users get their news there, too.  But a lot of that news is what's selected by users - the thing they want to know.  Many journalists say the industry's need to cater to this new audience keeps us from learning the things we NEED to know. 

Today, two conversations about the changing world of journalism.  First, Bob Woodward, considered by some as "the greatest reporter of our time".  He became famous in 1972 when he helped break the story of the Watergate Scandal, which ultimately led to the resignation of President Nixon.  He's written several books about the Bush White House, and is working on one about the Obama administration.  He'll be featured, along with Tina Brown at the Connecticut Forum tonight at 8PM for a conversation called "A World of Change".

Then, we'll listen to a bit of the panel discussion John Dankosky hosted at the Mark Twain House in Hartford this week - in conjunction with the premier of a CPTV documentary "On Deadline: Is Time Running Out for the Press?"
