Here’s the latest 4MR audio report from MediaShift. In this week’s edition, I talk about the new gloomy State of the Media report from the Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ), and the positive side for online media. I ask “Just One Question” to PEJ director Tom Rosensteil, and cover the latest news about jurors going online, Twittering and Facebooking when they’re supposed to be mum about trials in progress. Check it out:
