Description: Veteran journalist and CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen shares his own thoughts on how new media are impacting him as professional journalist and the news business. With blogging and photo-sharing websites, anyone can publish an article or photo that they have created. This creates a mass amateurization of journalism and photography, requiring a new definition of what credentials make someone a journalist, photographer, or news reporter. This change in new media and technology is changing the way news is spread throughout different media outlets.
