Bloggers can’t touch this — yet


A parking deck collapsed in Atlanta yesterday. Amazingly there were no injuries reported. Authorities let the Press/Media in early this morning to take photos after the structure was stabilized and I’m betting that there were no citizen journalists covering the story at 4 a.m. and if there were, I doubt that they would have been granted permission to enter with the rest.

Citizen journalism is great for capturing breaking or impromptu news events, but I wonder how long it will be before they’re invited along for “staged” events. And how will it be determined who gets in?

Pool reporting for citizen journalists? Time will tell.
