The world has been following the stories about the trial of Rod Blagojevich with fascination, but what has the story meant to the journalists reporting the stories?

Reporters share tales about their experience covering the trial and address questions such as: How was covering this trial different than covering other trials? And, how might media coverage have affected the trial's outcome...and affect the next one?

Organizers: Association for Women Journalists-Chicago and the Chicago Headline Club in cooperation with Columbia College's Journalism Department.
