‘In times of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act’ George Orwell

 This seems to be the moto of independent journalists on the front line reporting with digital online broadcast technologies like Ustream 

Once the monopoly of  CNN (founded in 1980)the ability to broadcast 24/7  breaking news events around the world is now in the hands of the citizen reporter. Cameras were always available and reporters in the right place at the right time were in position but the single thing that big media always had was broadcast & distribution ability. This has all changed with sites like Ustream. 

So Ustream tv  is now used in times of crisis, in riots, demonstrations, disasters and political activism to broadcast breaking news events by non network guerrilla reporters. On the entertainment side Ustream is also used to broadcast concerts and shows.

LIVESTREAM is another community broadcast network Livestream  is a video platform like Ustream that allows users to view and broadcast video content using a camera and a computer through the internet.

Both technologies empower people to record content that otherwise may be censored. Another example of the power of Content Connects via access to broadcasting.

What is means is that anyone who has a breaking story or coverage of an event can now broadcast it to a global audience. You too can have your own 24/7 TV Station.
