Um exemplo russo | A russian example

Passaram ontem dois anos sobre o assassinato de Anna Politkovskaya. Os Repórteres Sem Fronteiras  assinalaram a data com um apelo à comunidade internacional para que os culpados sejam levados perante a justiça, a justiça que Politkovskaya procurou como jornalista e cidadã.

Acabei recentemente o seu Diário Russo, e acho que é um livro que todos os aspirantes a jornalistas devem ler, para perceberem que apesar dos riscos é preciso mostrar a verdade. A tenacidade e a coragem de Politkovskaya não são comuns, mas são necessários. Ela sabia que iria pagar um preço elevado, mas não recuou, e o seu legado é um exemplo para todos nós, os que procuramos a verdade e o bem comum.

Da mesma importância que o Arquipélago de Gulag de Solzhenitsyn, o Diário Russo é um trabalho jornalístico único, onde acompanhamos os dois últimos anos de Politkovskaya nas suas viagens pela Rússia de Putin, no rescaldo do Nord-Ost, durante o massacre de Beslan, na recolha de testemunhos sobre a Chechénia. É a reconstrução laboriosa e perigosa de uma verdade a que ninguém tinha acesso, e um documento importante para se perceber a Rússia dos nossos dias.

É também um modelo de coragem e de empenho, não só profissional, mas pessoal e humano.

Yesterday was the second anniversary over the murder of Anna Politkovskaya. The Reporters Without Borders marked the date with a call out to the international community so that the accused may be brought forth to justice, the justice Politkovskaya always searched as a journalist and citizen.

I recently finished reading her Russian Diary, and i believe it is a must read book for all aspiring journalists, to understand that despite the risks the truth must be exposed. Politkovskaya’s tenacity and courage are not common, but are necessary. she knew she was going to pay a high price, but didn’t flinch, and her legacy is an example to all of us, those who strive  for the truth and the common good.

As important as Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago , the Russian Diary is a unique journalistic work, where we follow Politkovskaya’s last two years in her voyages across Putin’s Russia, from the aftermath of the Nord-Ost, during the Beslan massacre, gathering information and testimonies about Chechnya. It’s the laborious and dangerous reconstruction of a truth that no one had access to, and an important document to understand nowadays Russia.

It is also a model of courage and commitment, not only professional, but also personal and human.

Reporters Without Borders today called on the international community to launch a new call for justice to be done on the eve of the second anniversary of the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya, of the bi-weekly Novaya Gazeta and a specialist in the Caucasus region.

The campaigning journalist was gunned down at her apartment building in Moscow on 7 October 2006.

Riscos da profissão | Job Hazards

Uma jornalista é atingida por um sniper na Geórgia em directo | A journalist is shot by a sniper in Georgia live

Ser jornalista é arriscado. Se o objectivo é mostrar a verdade e divulgá-la, é natural que se façam inimigos, que se passe a ser um alvo a abater. Aqui a vida até é relativamente fácil, mas na Rússia, na China, em África, as coisas são muito mais perigosas. Mas é precisamente por isso que tem que ser feito.

Being a journalist is risky. If your goal is to find and show the truth, it is natural that we make some enemies along the way, that we become shooting targets. Around here life is relatively easy, but in Russia, China, Africa, things are way more dangerous. But that’s exactly why it has to be done.

O Repórter Moderno | The Modern Reporter

Free Newspaper ResearchNa sequência de algumas dicas para estudantes e jovens jornalistas, deixo-vos aqui este post do Innovation in College Media, que apanhou bem esta descrição de Meranda Watling (do famoso MerandaWrites.com) de com um jornalista deve trabalhar hoje em dia.

_______________________

Following some tips for students and young journalists, i’ll leave you with this post from the Innovation in College Media, that caught well this description by Meranda Watling ( from the famous MerandaWrites.com) of how a journalist must work today.

That story that broke at 4:30? It came in via an e-mail tip. I actually “broke” the news about 4:40 p.m. I had quickly confirmed the gist of it and wrote two paragraphs to post immediately. Because the editors were in the daily budget meeting, I had another reporter read over it, and then I had a copy editor post it asap so I could begin chasing the sources who were leaving their offices at or before 5 p.m. After I reached those sources, I wrote into the online version and updated. When my editor got back he swapped it out and posted it in the No. 1 spot online.

I went to my board meetings armed with notebook and pen — AND a laptop, Internet card and my Blackberry. I continued to report and write during the meetings. On my drive between the two meetings? I made calls on the A1 story.

When I got back to the newsroom around 8:45 p.m., I made a few more calls and banged out the A1 story and then two more about the meetings I’d covered. All before the 10:30 print deadline. I made cop calls, and half-way down the 10-county list we heard a shooting over the scanner. I went there and called in a Web update from the scene.

That is a sampling of what “newspaper” reporters are expected to do today, at least at my newspaper.

Roy Greenslade do Guardian entrevistou Jeremy Paxman, o incisivo apresentador da BBC para o Frontline Club, que partilhou a sua experiência como jornalista. A meio da conversa, Paxman abordou a formação dos jovens jornalistas. Greenslade no seu blog fez um post sobre isso e sobre o facto dos jovens jornalistas terem de trabalhar de graça:

Roy Greenslade from the Guardian interviewed Jeremy Paxman, the BBCs incisive presenter,for the Frontline Club, who shared his experience as a journalist.In the middle of this conversation, Paxman talked about young journalists formation. Greenslade wrote about it, and related it to the exploitation of young journalists that work for free:

“He said it in the context of having first poured scorn on university journalism courses, saying – to a mix of laughter and faint boos – that “you can learn to be a journalist in three weeks.” I’m going to ignore that prejudice to deal with his point about the way in which would-be journalists must work for free, or very little, in order to obtain jobs. (…)Only the rich can afford to work for months without pay on magazines – and at newspapers, TV channels and radio stations.

@ “Exploitation scandal: why do we allow young journalists to work for nothing?

Afinal não é só cá…

Vale a pena ver a entrevista até ao fim, pela personagem de Paxman e pelas experiências que ele partilha. E vejam como ele explora a arte de fazer as perguntas certas.

It’s not just here…

The interview is worth watching until the end, for Paxman’s character and the personal experiences he shares. And see how he works the art of questioning. With the right questions.

CVs New Media e RH | New Media Resumes and HR

wenger-85-swiss-army-knife.jpg

Ao ler este post de Paul Conley, pensei imediatamente em todos os CVs que enviei nos últimos oito anos, e no pouco resultado que me deram. Uma das perguntas que sempre a fiz mesmo foi: será que quem ler o meu cv percebe o que sei fazer?A ideia que tenho é que não. Se nem as empresas sabem do que andam à procura, como é que nós vendemos as nossas capacidades? A maioria parece querer um canivete suíço para usar a faca como chave de fendas.

A questão é: como é que se deve apresentar um CV de jornalista new media em condições?Alguém sabe?

While reading this post by Paul Conley, i immediatly thought about all the resumes i sent in the last years, and how did they amount to almost nothing. One of the questions i repeated to myself was: does anyone who read my resume fully understands what i can do? I don’t think so. If even the hiring companies aren’t aware of their own needs, how can we sell our own abilities? Most of them seem to want a swiss knife to use the cork screw as a screwdriver.

The question is: how should a proper new media resume look like? Any thoughts?
