Amateur Newsies Top The Pros

from the self-congratulatory-backslapping dept

Wired has another article on how many amateur reporters and photographers ended up with much better accounts of what happened last Tuesday, and the emotions, thoughts, and feelings of people everywhere. To me, this isn’t such a surprise – but I’m not sure how many people really read or saw the amateur content. Of course, there is a group of folks who look at “amateur” content all the time – so it’s no surprise that they continued to do so throughout the tragic events. However, how many people in broader society ended up discovering the same photographs and accounts that were passed around, mirrored, and linked to throughout the amateur community?
