Richard Sambrook on the future of journalism

Richard Sambrook spoke about the approaches the BBC is taking to online media at the COI, and seemed to be on our side:

This huge flow of information just needs a different journalism.
Never confuse information with good journalism. There is both demand and a need for verification and fact checking that is at the heart of journalism however the journalist collects his or her information. 

Information professionals are just as important now as in the days of print-only media – perhaps more so, with the increased number of people viewing published information and the speed of publication.
