Society of Professional Journalists hosted a video chat with Mother Jones editor Steve Katz and reporter Kate Sheppard

Students learned about the role Mother Jones played in releasing the controversial Mitt Romney 47 percent video released last week, as well as learning about the advantages and disadvantages of working for an independent media outlet.

Sheppard, an ‘06 journalism graduate of IC, gave advice to students about diversifying their education, while Katz talked about the challenges and benefits at working for a non-profit magazine.

The IC chapter will meet again next Monday, October 1 to discuss our recent trip to the Excellence in Journalism conference, held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
