Consuming the New Media: A Roundtable Discussion

The nature of the personal media experience is changing drastically with every new gadget or technology we encounter. As the media transforms from the old mass-media "push" of broadcasting to the new-media "pull" of Internet searches and downloads, individuals will consume advertising, music, television, news, games, and politics quite differently. The panel will describe how these changes are affecting the news and the marketing and entertainment habits of Americans, and how they are thereby changing the modern business model. Peter Beinart, James Fallows, Lyric M. Hughes Hale, Arianna Huffington, Laura Ingraham, Billy Kimball, Priscilla Painton and Lynda Resnick discuss with Charlie Firestone.

Festival: 2006
