How to Be a Citizen Journalist
The world of journalism is changing. While some institutions still exist to dig out the truth of our political, social and economic arenas, more and more the task is falling to regular people, often empowered through the tools of new media technologies. Here are a few tools for those who'd care to try.
Aside: Comrade Loving is in no position to criticize anyone's design choices. She might not like Glorious Leader's yellow, but the amount of lavender on her blog would make a drag queen blush:
ANYWAY, we're confused. No where in her blog does she explain or even bring up her "ask my friends for help to hack website" investigative journalism technique. She must have developed that after she abandoned her blog and moved on to scamming the Skanner into believing helping the less fortunate, er BLACK PEOPLE, was her life's ambition.
Yes, we are being assholes about this. Because nothing helps black people like virtually controlling the only paper in town with African American's as it's primary focus, and at the same time, putting that paper at risk by soliciting criminal behavior and being connected to the paper. Cuz we all know how much black people love being the objects of suspicion through their associates. Comrade Lisa needs to step down as editor forever, er, until this situation is resolved. If she really cares about the Black community and it's only paper in town.
MOVING ON, more leaks!
From an email received this afternoon: notes from the super duper sekrit cabal on April 26, that most of KBOO membership doesn't seem to have been invited to:
Notes from Keep KBOO mtg 4/26/13
It was two months ago, but we can expect this is the template for how the Inner Party works for ALL of KBOO membership by making sure MOST of KBOO membership isn't in attendance or even aware it's happening.
Ignorance IS Strength!
