Citizen journos get the stories

Citizen journos are getting all the best images it seems.During the G20 demos it was a citizen who who used his video phone to record the cop who batoned an innocent newspaper seller and killed him. The Guardian splashed the story worldwide.

Last night it was BBC showing footage by 'political blogger' (a new name for Citizen Journo/video activist perhaps?) Kate Belgrave (exterior pictures) and Samuel Stewart (interior pictures), shows how the situation developed when a protest erupted at Lewisham town hall
