After viewing the excellent on the spot coverage by Pamela a.k.a. Atlas Shrugs of an anti Israeli protest in New York City this week, I am struck by the fact that I would never get this kind of coverage from the MSN. Pamela has recently added the VLOG feature to her blog.
In a 4+ minute video, she provided up close and personal on-the-spot coverage. With great courage she confronts the protesters and you see their unedited response. Nothing left to the cutting room floor here. You get a REAL sense of what's going on. The combination of a video camera and a blog give the American citizen a real news story exactly as it happened.
I just know I would never have seen this type of coveage from any of the local or national media. Perhaps it would be reported in a local paper, buried in the back somewhere?
This reaffirms the need for the alternative news viewpoint represented by bloggers. And Tulsa is lucky to have a great group of bloggers, the Tulsa Bloggers.
