PBS Arts Off Book put out this interesting, short video this week with some thoughts from a few leading minds in the digital journalism sphere (including Mark Luckie, the 10,000 Words founder and current manager of journalism and news at Twitter). The subject is all about how Twitter has impacted journalism and journalists’ role in using the service to source news and be a source of news. I wanted to pass it on because some of the points the speakers (Luckie, Jeff Jarvis, Craig Kanalley and Chris Anderson) brought up were important to think over, including the role of journalists as the filter for Tweets/breaking news and also the importance of realizing a lot of sources and people aren’t on Twitter or Facebook. Anyway, it’s only about 5 minutes long. Watch it.

Earlier this week, SXSW announced their 2012 schedule which includes over 5,000 events in the conference’s film, interactive and music tracks. Some events are still TBA, but the schedule will be updated the closer it moves to the conference’s opening date of March 9, 2012.
Here are just a few of the confirmed panels which should be of interest to journalists. This is a random sample of the entire schedule; you can search the full list of panels on the 2012 SXSW Schedule page.
What happens to a society when they lose trust in traditional media? Do they turn to online media, like blogs and Facebook? Apparently not, according to a new study commissioned by PBS.
In honor of its Nov. 1 launch across the pond, the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) released its first PBS UK Trust report, which interviewed 1,108 UK adults and 1,095 US adults. The findings show that the British public was rocked by this summer’s phone-hacking scandal, so much so that 58 percent say they have lost trust in newspapers.
More surprisingly, however, is that 64 percent of UK respondents say TV is the most trusted news outlet, with radio a close second at 58 percent. Read more
