Excellent Journalism: Neda and New York Times’ The Lede

I am now sure that no one understands the power of this new digital era better than Robert Mackey, head writer of The Lede blog at the New York Times. Watch this video of the death of Neda in Iran to see what journalism of the future will be.

It is chilling, heartbreaking and informative; it is pro-am journalism combined and it is everything high impact and high quality journalism should be. Also praise must go to the producer Jigar Mehta and to the daring people in Iran who posted it for the world to see.
