Nearly two years into the Obama administration, reporters who cover the federal government face increased challenges in informing the public. National Press Club President and SJMC alumnus Alan Bjerga gives his perspective on what's been happening in Washington as reporters adapt to new forms of media, the new economics of news organizations and age-old questions of reporting on political power.
