RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) Democracy in Action hosted the event featuring a panel of 6 local journalists.
Some of the issues discussed were how news-gathering process works -- as wells as ways it can be improved, and issues that can come up in the future.
In a topic prevalent in today's environment, the panel discussed how community members can tell the difference between authentic journalism and "fake news."
john Tsitrian says, ' There is just so much junk and garbage out there, we really have to have some sort of grid or some sort of system that will make it easier or more realistic to separate the wheat of the good news from the chaff of the garbage."
Tsitrian said he would like to develop a pool of outstanding journalists with specific areas of expertise.
