It is no secret that American media is in turmoil, with many longstanding fixtures in print journalism either folding or forced to layoff staff. Each week through the end of 2009, a different media insider will offer their perspective on what media will look like in 5, 10, or 15 years–and what will become of investigative journalism. The series includes commentary from John Nichols, Dan Rather, Jane Mayer, Victor Navasky, Ana Marie Cox, David Schimke and Nick Penniman.

This week, Anna Marie Cox, National Correspondent for Air America, speaks at the 2009 Nation/Campus Progress Student Journalism Conference about the future of journalism and what it means for young writers. Cox reflects on her experiences during the 2008 presidential election and proposes that we might see an influx of reporters that are hired by specific candidates to do opposition research and reporting.
