A Radio Canada journalist is among five French-speaking broadcast journalists who will will be holed-up in a farmhouse for a project called "Behind closed doors on the Net" to test the limits of reporting solely with Facebook and Twitter.They will be cut off from television, radio, smartphones and print media, and be given cellphones with no Internet capability.
