5. Lets hear it for citizen journalism!

Fact is: if not for this employee taking the risks of filming and releasing this amateur clip, the election might have gone differently.

The other fact is that the MSM is incapable and unwilling to investigate or expose anything anymore, in lieu of spewing massaged press releases for 'access', and towing the corporate line for big bucks.

The 47% tape, and coverage of the Arab spring, OWS, police brutality etc further prove that we need citizen journalists, and a free and public internet, more now than ever.
