Citizen journalist videos through op-ed pages of NYTimes.com

Later this week videos created by citizen journalists that look at issues surrounding the upcoming presidential primaries, in the US, will be available alongside professional work through the op-ed pages of NYTimes.com, according to Beet.tv.

Talking to Beet, Cynthina Farrar, producer with Purplestates.tv (and Yale researcher scholar), explained how non-professional reporters working with her new company put together nearly a dozen pieces for the Times.

Purplestates.tv is also running the videos through Facebook and will build applications for its videos to run through Open Social, Farrar added.

Independent.co.uk goes to Hollywood

Well, it nearly did…

A scene from new film A Mighty Heart, which tells the story of murdered American journalist Daniel Pearl, features a shot of an article about shoe-bomber Richard Reid on the Indy’s website.

But apparently the site didn’t make the grade and a new version had to be made just for filming.

“They all thought that The Indy’s website was so poor they didn’t want to show it to the viewers and so recreated another one for the movie,” a producer told Press Gazette’s Axegrinder blog.
