They just had an electoral fraud over there and nobody seemed to care like they did in Iran..
Is that because Karzai’s is actually OUR corrupt government?

“Citizen journalism” is simply people doing it for themselves because, whether we are in Iran, or the US, or the UK, our experiences, stories and opinions are almost always edited out of the government and corporate press and media of our own countries. Instead we are expected to always swallow whatever establishment lies and propaganda these media throw at us. “Citizen journalism” should be encouraged and promoted here, too. If it isn’t the mainstream media may well find itself by-passed and redundant, now that there are alternatives to it.

When activated, the media would be tagged with meta data such as GPS and time stamps as it’s acquired. The stamps would not link back to a specific phone and therefore not compromise the photographer’s identity. At the same time, the stamps would offer some credible evidence the footage or photos were acquired where and when they are believed to have be taken.
