Can Animation Be Journalism?
AN AIRLINE PASSENGER recently opted not to go through the full-body scanner at San Diego International Airport. Instead, he requested the full-body pat-down. But when the security officer explained what would happen, the passenger said, “If you touch my junk I will have you arrested.”
The passenger captured the entire event on his cell phone video camera, and the raw video has gone viral.
A Hong Kong-based news operation creates animated videos of news stories, like the airport incident. Watch the video above.
Is the animation an appropriate way to handle a news story? Could this be the future of journalism?
