The sale of The Washington Post - for a fraction of its value just a few years ago - to Amazon Founder, Jeff Bezos, is emblematic of the changing landscape of journalism. The rise of Twitter as the go-to news source, and the proliferation of other innovative news delivery systems have changed the game forever. Leading visionaries from the worlds of journalism and tech discuss what it all means for future jobs in news.
