Video Portrait of an independent journalist, composed by a journalism student
Well, this is a real short film. It, as a "Video Portrait", portrays “News2Share Editor-in-chief Ford Fischer”, filmed by journalism student Andrew Demeter.
Fischer explains the value to the public to see raw footage of conflict in public, not just ordinary protest marches but sometimes violent protests and disorder, such as what occurred in Washington DC on Trump’s Inauguration Day, or in France with the Yellow Vest protests, or some of the Antifa confrontations.
Such journalism means some physical preparation for danger, including helmet, and hardy equipment.
And right now, YouTube doesn’t seem willing to monetize it, even when it is neutral and shown for documentary purposes.
