Basic Preparedness – for bloggers in “iffy” places

From the Committee to Protect Journalists

Independent bloggers ARE journalists, in all the sense of the word. From China, to Syria, to Occupy Wall Street, to Superstorm Sandy, new mobile media opens up a whole new world of reportage. Credibility, transparency, and security. These are major issues for all the new bloggers and Tweeters around the planet.

Whereas a major network journalist may be “too big to kill”, stringers and independent journalists are at risk, with tragic consequences every day.

Here are some great guidelines as you plan your next foray into a state at war with itself, global resource conflicts, and passion-fueled local controversies.
