http://coveringthecrisis.eu/ This interactive session reflects on the media's role in the crisis by using questions like: Did the media see the crisis coming? If they warned viewers and readers, then how come no one acted before it was too late? Or did we all just read the wrong papers and watch the wrong channels? Are generalist-journalists capable of covering the full financial story? Should financial journalism share the blame? Why did mass media failed to pick up on the Wall Street shenanigans that caused the crisis? How come the few specialist reporters who saw it coming failed to get their stories into the 'echo chamber'? Participants: Mark Gilbert, Global Capital Markets Columnist, London Bureau Chief and author of `Complicit: How Greed and Collusion Made The Credit Crunch Unstoppable'; Chris Hughes, Assistant Editor, Breakingviews.com; Danny Schechter, mediadissector, Mediachannel.org; 'The credit crisis; how did we miss it?'; Dean Starkman, Editor 'The Audit', Columbia Journalism Review, on 'Power Problem; the business press did everything but take on the institutions that brought down the financial system"; Robert Teitelman, editor-in-chief of The Deal, on 'Financial Journalism and its Critics'. Covering the Crisis generated two days of intense interaction and fruitful debate between leading global players from the world of financial journalism. Fresh insights were offered, new connections were made, experiences were shared and innovative ideas were generated.
