The Growing Conflict Between Journalism and Social Media

The stellar television journalism career of broadcaster Betsey Bruce allows a unique perspective on major changes during that time, including the difficulty of news consumers to separate basic news from opinion and the impact social media has on journalism. 

Bruce’s career began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Most recently a reporter and anchor at KTVI (Fox 2) and KPLR (News 11), she retired in December.
