A journalism educator and former journalist is seeking participants for a new study into journalism independence in Canadian newsrooms. 

If you are a traditional or non-traditional journalist or are working in any phase of the journalistic process, and if you have experienced or know of anyone who has experienced any interference with the content of the journalism produced, I would like to hear from you.

This project will assess the state of journalistic independence according to the basic provisions of the firewall principle.  Under this principle, a key measure of journalistic independence and integrity is freedom from interference by business, political, or other interests. 

A breach in the firewall might for example, cause a journalist to alter details of a story, to ignore a developing story, or even to kill a story altogether.
