Here are some on-the-ground reports by citizen journalists in and around Syria.
- Gamut News features a CJ video of soldiers firing on protestors
- The Christian Science Monitor features a CJ image of protests
- International rights and advocacy group Avaaz is showing video interviews of defectors from Syria’s security forces it claims were filmed by citizen journalists (Al Jazeera)
- An article from Business Insider on how the only way to get any news from Syria is through citizen journalists
- Also another reminder to not pounce onto every story, an American man created a hoax by pretending to be a gay Syrian-American woman, saying she was abducted. Lots of traditional journalists reported that as fact and may have caused an international incident.
