Can TV Journalism Survive the Social Media Revolution?

If anyone interested in the use of social media and the news [like I am]. this is required viewing. [It does contain some upsetting scenes].

#BreakingNews: Can TV Journalism Survive the Social Media Revolution?
 
The DNA of news is changing. Breaking stories come to us on our phones and computers as well as our televisions. Social media like Twitter and Facebook have transformed the speed and manner in which our news is sourced and delivered.
 
In the annual Royal Television Society Lecture, BBC reporter Lyse Doucet, who has reported from Syria, Iran and Afghanistan, asks how TV journalists should harness this astonishing new resource - or does the social media revolution spell the end for broadcast news?

The artists also look at how the roles of watchers and the watched interchange through social media and citizen journalism as well as creating their own surveillance imagery, looking at the ethics and issues of surveillance by doing it and seeing what can be learnt by becoming the spy!

We started looking at the issues of surveillance after finding we were under surveillance for photographing at protests as part of our job as photojournalists. We both have been subject to “stop and search” on many occasions and photographed by the FIT (Forwards Intelligence Team) which led us to look in depth at the issues of life under surveillance, we still get followed…
