Muckraking for the Modern Man

Hello, hello.
I hope you are having a lovely Monday.
This week Collective wants to focus your attention to an insanely artistic approach to journalism. "News21 is a national project that encourages and supports new forms of investigative reporting and storytelling," reports NPR's Coburn Dukehart. "The venture — funded by a Carnegie and Knight initiative — includes eight “incubator” universities, where students hone their reporting and digital skills in the classroom, then follow up with hands-on reporting in the field"
This project has fused the art of film, audio, storytelling & reporting into one power-house of a hybrid. The full article (found at: http://www.npr.org/blogs/pictureshow/2010/08/17/129258578/journalism-for-the-21st-century) highlights Syracuse University's News21 student and her story of Jerry Middleton, a former driver in the Vietnam war. The final product can be seen viewed on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/13764307). To see more of the students work check out News21.com.
