    Photography is not a Blog ^ | May 2, 2013 | Carlos Miller
    In the latest example of how the mainstream media is clueless to the online democratization of journalism, a CBS Miami reporter, who makes a living standing in front of the camera, confronted me about video recording him in public while on assignment.

All I was doing was attempting to video record him interviewing my girlfriend, Rachel Mestre, about a brewing scandal involving a local towing company that she has been documenting on her blog. My plan was to...

    Interview CEO Adam Baker talks up collaborative reporting by journalists and readers NEWS REPORTING might never be the same. "I think we've tapped into the fact that millions of people on the street have the technology to be able to capture and record news instantly," says Adam Baker, founder and CEO of Blottr."And that level of scale... when you do that it becomes very disruptive and could put us into pole position as the breaking news service."Blottr is an attempt to reinvent news as true "citizen journalism".

    A Navy Chief once told me that close only counts in three things: horseshoes, hand grenades and area-effect weapons. Now, when it comes down to how the mainstream media tried to portray members of the Tea Party they did not come “close.”Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, America has witnessed a popular uprising of people who have grown concerned by the massive power grab by President Obama and his allies in Congress, who have tried to cram “activist government” down our throats, while leaving the bills to our kids, grandkids and their children’s children.When...

    Not surprisingly Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit gave a videoblogging demo, showing just how easy it is to add video reports to online content. In an interesting development, Glaser also reported that Cox announced he is working with the Poynter Institute to offer up online classes for journalists and bloggers explaining blogging basics. The classes will be part of Poynter's NewsU and may include information to help bloggers understand liability issues. On my own blog several months ago I pointed out the great potential for such synergy. Meanwhile newspapers continue to jump on the blogging bandwagon. Brian Gottstein, a former online...
