WordPress went down for a few minutes and I lost my notes, but Liz Nord, Supervising Producer of MTV News, spoke about the increasing use of mobile techniques to distribute information.
The company has 51 citizen journalists – one from each state plus Washington, D.C. – covering local election issues relating to youths.
A video she played at the end of the presentation pretty much summed up her views. One of the citizen journalists was at a Hillary Clinton rally, and a cameraman came up to her and asked her if she was reporting. She said yes and he asked how. She simply responded, “This is live-to-web. New technology kids!”
