(20:00) Guest: Lewis DVorkin, Chief Product Officer at Forbes Media  In 2013, the Pew Research Center says 82% of Americans got news on a desktop or laptop and more than had said they received news on a mobile device. Many young people get their news almost exclusively from what shows up from friends and sponsors on Facebook or Twitter feeds. This shifts in news consumption is helping usher in a new role for journalists.  “I have always believed that the mission of journalism is to inform,” says DVorkin.  “If they’re going to understand their audience they need to understand what the audience consumes and how they consume their stories,” says DVorkin on journalists.  “Today’s most successful journalists,” says DVorkin “will be the most knowledgeable about a specific category.”
