Bringing the citizen voice into traditional media is the thought process behind a post at The FastForward Blog.

Of course most young people are very experienced users of social media. Much more experienced that most of the folks at KETC. BUT what we know how to do very well is to

  • Tell a story
  • Edit video and sound
  • Have a big megaphone – we have the official “air”

So we have been trying a few experiments with the Flip Camera – we have lent some Flips to groups of younger folks and given them an assignment – We asked them to comment on what was The American Dream today for them. You will see that this has become a very difficult question to answer now. What dream? Seems to be a common point of view.

We then worked with them to turn their material into the best 3 minute epics that is possible and then put them onto our “Air” – we have put the rest onto our YouTube Channel.

This is happening more and more as television stations are talking to young people and finding out what kind of news that want to see.

And they are being shown.
