Doc Searls is Journalism: Part 2

On Wednesday I wrote a post saying that Doc Searls is Journalism because he took a picture of a moment in time and published it. It was a momnet that no one else captured, no big media was there. By saying that Doc Searls is Journalism, I was saying that all of us are reporters. If we all capture moments in text, audio and video, and publish them for others to share, we'll get a fuller picture of things that are happening.

Doc Searls did it again yesterday...

Doc Searls reports from Logan Airport on Thursday, August 10, 2006 at 4:30 AM:
"Something bad happened (they won't tell us), and now the TSA won't let you carry any liquids, gels, pastes or fluids of any kind (pens?) through security checkpoints. Gotta check your medicines, sunblock, water bottels, whatever. This directive went down this morning (it's 4:30am here at Logan in Boston) and has caused a huge backup at the ticket counters and the security checkpoints. I'm sure it's just as bad everywhere, though I haven't looked at any of the news sources yet. (I think I'm at the leading edge of the news, sort of, right here.)"
And he's serving as a trusted filter today, by pointing to yesterday's piece on terrorism by ZeFrank and providing pointing to and quoting a transcription.

Yay Doc. News you can trust.
