The horrific events at Virginia Tech this morning — the killing of “at least 21” (update: at least 31) are the top of everyone’s news in the U.S. The reporting, if you will, was enhanced by mobile-phone camera images that CNN is showing (available via the link above).
More and more major news stories will be amplified in this way. Spot news will be, in part, a citizen-captured phenomenon, and there’s no going back.
Also: Note the way the Roanoke Times is covering the news: blog-style. It’s the right format for this kind of event.
