democracy after journalism

Watch the video of the panel. The panel took place on 15 April 2011.

With the growth of citizen media and the flood of data being put online by governments, do we need traditional journalism? The public are increasingly getting their information from social networks or direct from organisations. Groups like Wikileaks expose wrong-doing, which means that we are all now living in a Glass Room of transparency. So what would democracy look like without journalism?
