Lego man explains citizen journalism

with 2 comments

This is a fun video explaining the rise of citizen journalism over traditional journalism – using Lego men. 

Here is a list of takeaway points:

  • Journalism is now a two-way stream
  • Blogs and video streaming sites are ways to tell a story
  • Internet connections, computers and mobile phones are the necessities
  • Nearly anyone can report a news story
  • Independent reporting is occasionally filtered through major news outlets
