146 Notes

futurejournalismproject:

As Libyan rebels entered Tripoli yesterday, Sky News reporter Alex Crawford appeared to be the only Western broadcast reporter on the scene.

How’d she do it? How’d she broadcast from the capital?

According to the Daily Telegraph “the astonishing footage from the streets of Tripoli was produced using an Apple Mac Pro laptop computer connected to a mini-satellite dish that was charged by a car cigarette lighter socket.”

Somewhere MacGyver is smiling.

C’mon futurejournalismproject, you should know better… Including a link to MacGuyver’s wikipedia entry but not The Daily Mail’s article you swiped the info from. I guess this is the future of journalism, cutesy links to bs on wikipedia instead of meaningful attribution.
