We’ll talk about the blockbuster investigation, the near-immediate regulatory changes it’s already brought to the industry and the paper’s decision to roll it out online days before it appeared in print to create buzz. Also, the mega merger between Verizon and AOL, why some are critical of Seymour Hersh’s assertion the Obama administration lied about bin Laden and the end of “American Idol.” From the Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Mike McKean: Views of the News.
