Watch Now Date Added: Nov 2010
Format: Webcast

What's a journalist to do when a major story must be coaxed reluctantly into public view, or emerges on what seems like a geological time scale? These panelists discuss how to approach slowly evolving but urgent stories at a time when news coverage has shifted inexorably from print and its variable deadlines to the constant, repetitive churn of cable news and instant internet information. In setting up the discussion, the moderator discusses the concept of "Slow-moving crises" and changes in the practice of journalism.
