Senior CMCS Research Fellow Markos Kounalakis, President and Publisher Emeritus of the Washington Monthly and a former foreign reporter for Newsweek and NBC, moderated a roundtable discussion with Budapest-based foreign press correspondents and reporters.

Considering that the established model of international newsgathering, with foreign reporters working at fixed bureaus overseas, has struggled to survive in the 21st century media landscape, they discussed whether there are new, financially feasible business models for foreign reporting in the age of digital journalism; how traditional reporters can compete with citizen journalists who work for free and get to the story first; and how the changes in foreign corresponding will impact foreign policy and foreign policy-making.
