Skype Conference: Kevin Anderson

Filed Under (COMM 361, Professor Klein) by on 24-03-2011 and tagged , , ,

Anderson’s approach towards journalism: “People can tell their own story and be their own witnesses. For instance, know your sources before something happens.”

  • Anderson was a BBC Washington DC corespondent when he was 26.

Important to be sources you are using in context.

Don’t paintball a bunch of twitter updates and call it a news story.

Network to journalism is the role of social media today. Use networks to find sources.

  • If we amplify every voice it just becomes noise.
