It’s all Monica Lewinsky’s fault! At least that’s one of the conclusions drawn at the recent panel NYU Media Talk series about media, ethics, the right to privacy. Says Jim Kelly: It struck me as though the world [in terms of journalism and right to privacy] was different before Monica Lewinsky and it’s never been the same since then.” Says David Carr: “Knowing the characteristics of the first member, that’s probably TMI.”
Also, the panel discusses what qualifies someone as a journalist (hint: it has something to do with sourcing). The event was hosted by the Center for Publishing at NYU featuring David Carr, Liz Smith, Judge Napolitano of Fox News, Jim Kelly of Time, and Sherrese Smith of the Washington Post and moderated by Arthur R. Miller. Part four is after the jump and you can watch the entire thing here. And it’s definitely worth a watch, and not only because it puts David Carr and Liz Smith in the same room.
