How do we maintain ethnic standards when we live in the gale force wind of change? This panel at the Global Editors Network conference today in Paris was one of the last during an intense two and half day exchange. But it was also one of the most moving.

Niklas Lysvag is the News Editor for TV-2, the popular commercial TV network in Norway. He described the challenges facing their journalists on Friday afternoon July 22 2011. A massive fertilizer bomb went off next door to their offices in central Oslo and while they were trying to understand what just happened, reports started to come in that a massacre was also happening in Norway. TV-2 has compiled a film for internal use which they shared with the journalists in Paris for the first time. Very powerful. Very important that this analysis was made.
