Social Media Reporting LIVE
It's a whole new world we're living in.
And I'm not talking Aladdin magic carpet ride type shit. Aladdin really was the best Disney movie and I'll fight you on that.
But, in a much dimmer light, I'm talking more along the lines of we're catching shootings, like, in real time type shit.
The age of social media really is somethin' else. It's brought social injustices to the forefront and made journalists out of every day civilians. You got a phone? You're a gottdamn journalist on the front lines reporting live, the society in which you live in. Back to you, facebook.
But really, nothing more true, nothing more honest than the footage from an everyday person with a cellphone. No story to tell, no sponsors to appease, simply reality TV minus the advertisers and add well, the reality.

ISIS Using Social Media As Recruiting Tool
Earlier today, I was watching a documentary about how ISIS is using social media to radicalize not only middle easterners but also the disillusioned west and how at the same time, kids caught in the midst of the Palestinian and Israeli conflict are using facebook as a tool to voice their own injustices.
While many caught in the firefight of radicalized terrorists insist that many of these pages do nothing but incite more violence, they do give us a glimpse like never before into not only what is happening, but perhaps why.
Remember when Trump said we should, "bomb the shit out em," and "take out their families?"
Yea, well, this is actually happening in the middle east right now. Check the video below to see how social media is reporting live on all of this.
