Blogger Response to CNBC

Financial Reporting in Today’s Economy

Should financial media be held accountable for their failure to have warned the public of the current economic downturn? What steps are being taken to avoid this happening in the future?

A panel of leading financial reporters assess the global crisis and discuss the ‘perfect storm’ of events that led to it. Aspiring journalists will hear how to avoid the perils and pitfalls of the profession, and media observers can decide for themselves if the media is to blame.

With Charles Gasparino, on-air editor, CNBC; Farnoosh Torabi, correspondent, TV; Liz Claman, anchor, Fox Business Network; and Alan Murray, deputy managing editor, The Wall Street Journal; executive editor, Journal Online, and WSJ Television.

Moderated by Jeff Bercovici, Blogger, “Mixed Media,”
