For the week of Super Tuesday, we've asked five documentary filmmakers to give us their five favorite news websites.
Guerrilla News Network
Guerrilla News Network is a citizen journalism site that I have been involved with since just before the 2000 election. It's a great mix of news you don't or won't hear about on most other sites. Over the years it has provided me most of the story ideas for my film and video projects. Wait, did I just give up my source?
Brad Friedman is one of the top bloggers on electronic voting issues. Like all great bloggers he gives you the real deal with just enough attitude to keep you coming back for more.
Bev Harris is the other top muckraker covering elections and electronic voting machines. I followed this woman around for about a year with a video camera and she never ceases to amaze me. She is honestly the only interview I've conducted that has ever gotten me choked up. A true patriotic citizen.
Alternet.org is a news portal that gives you an alternative perspective on most major stories of the day. Good issue based coverage and pretty much a one-stop shop to keep you informed and mad as hell.
Well this is an effort after my own heart. We made Mosh in '04 to try and encourage young people to vote. It keeps me inspired to know that people still sometimes make things with a greater good in mind.
