Charlie Sennott on the state of international reporting

Last month, the Nieman Foundation gathered its alumni and friends in Cambridge for its 70th Convocation. (You may remember this video of the Washington Post’s Len Downie from the same event.) After Downie’s speech, there was a six-person panel discussion on the future of journalism online. Thanks to our own Ted Delaney (you know him as Edward J., but he’s Ted around the office), we have video of each panel member’s opening statement, and we’ll be bringing them to you over the next week-plus.

To start off, here’s Charles Sennott, former Boston Globe foreign correspondent and cofounder of Global Post, the much anticipated international-news startup set to launch next month.
