Pulitzers, social media in Syria

Just to keep the conversation going … here is a link to this year’s Pulitzer Prize winners for journalism (Isabel Wilkerson did not win the General Nonfiction book award). Take a look at the lead video in the Explanatory Reporting category, noting the simple use of explanatory text as supers or separate slides, the mix of music bed with interviews, etc. There are lots more in the series.

Finally (for now!) Pulitzer-winner Anthony Shadid of the New york Times describes how social media helped get the word, and the images, out to the world from conflict-ridden Syria while the government was trying to shit down avenues of communication. Citizen journalists, of a sort.

Don’t forget to get us copies of all your audio, video and photos by or at our final meeting Wednesday, May 4 at 2 p.m.
