In her post on reporting Occupy, Sarah Jaffe says what I've been trying to get at with the journalism I like and want to do, but haven't been able to put together quite as well as her.
If the definition of journalism we casually came up with when I went with Matt Bors to talk to a graduate class at my alma mater holds true—if journalism is "telling other people's stories"—then movement journalism is more journalism than what wanky analytic pundits at the Washington Post or the New York Times do, because they are telling the story of statistics and numbers and how smart they are, and I am trying to tell the story of people, who work and struggle and fail and succeed and sometimes just come together to dance.
