  • Wikipedia is an amazing news site. Is away to get a really quick overview an event or something.
  • Using facebook to tell a story… the Washington Post used facebook as a story telling device for a pregnant sick mommy.
  • The people news- straight from the horses mouth. Ask the audience whats happening there on the ground.
  • Hyper-local trend is exploding, community can participate. (Stuff like

TBD– a great news site.
