Journalism Tools and Tips

The 'Downing St. Memos' destroyed? Not on your Nelly!

Henk Ruyssenaars | If one as an investigative journalist wants to stay alive, one way to do it is 'serving' the explosive information in portions. First fifty%, then 25, and the last 25% is a kind of 'life guard': used until a 'case of emergency' erupts, like when the journalist or whistleblower is "suicided". more...  0 Comments

'Being the Media' and Critical Mass

Chris Anderson | Since August, this website’s coverage of Critical Mass and its accompanying legal and police battles has been remarkable, and it points to the long-touted, too-often unrealized potential of Indymedia. When the first IMC website was founded with the slogan “be the media†its founders meant exactly that—ordinary people, participants in events both big and small, would “be their own media†and would break free of the stifling corporate and governmental control that has dominated communications for hundreds of years. Sometimes, especially during large political protests, Indymedia has lived up to this founding idea. But other times, it (and internet journalism more generally) has fallen short. Why has NYC Critical Mass inspired such an outburst of participatory journalism? Can it continue or even grow, or expand to other events and issues? more...  8 Comments
