    The ethics of digital media are evolving just as fast as the medium itself. The Poynter Institute and PBS MediaShift hosted “Truth and Trust in the 21st Century,” a symposium on Nov. 13, 2013, in New York discussing the issues of ethical practices in the age of new media. Here’s a recap of the issues discussed, along with photos, video and more.

      Anything with the Huffington Post there, is already on the ground of yellow journalism tabloid culture. Mediashift is a joke.
