First-hand information and facts disseminate quickly on social networking sites nowadays; professional journalists lost control (of-over) first-hand facts they used to have. Even so, David Schlesinger,Chairman of Thomson Reuters China, said it is not the end of journalism, instead journalists should provide much more like "analysis and added value" (in Shue Yan University on Tuesday, 27 March.-needs to be closer to said, otherwise can ambiguous)


In the past, journalists always feel proud to be the first one to have information. But now, ordinary people can do their own first-hand reporting and deliver it via social networking sites, like Twitter. Live Reporting of (article) Mumbai attack, Sichuan earthquake was delivered via Twitter and Weibo respectively. Those were some (examples of) successful coverage from non-professionals.


Schlesinger said some journalists feel depressed because they lost their monopoly. However, he felt the opposite because he believed journalists should now focus on "analysis and added value".


In order to stand out among others, Schlesinger suggested a few ways for today(s) journalists (to achieve it-omit& reverse sentence order starting with Schlesinger, OR connect sentence with quote) . "First, speed. Journalists should have the facts before anyone else. Second, have the facts other people don't have. Third, present the facts better than others. Forth, ubiquity. And fifth, expertise," said Schlesinger.


Schlesinger emphasized even if journalists seem to have lost traditional advantages; he still "would like to get right back into it". To consolidate his belief on analysis and added value, he said he "will start a company to sell analysis and added value" after his retirement from Thomson Reuters China in August.
