FOX 11 News Report on Anonymous

Anonymous reached a global attention through their hacking: mainstream media have covered the episodes ambiguously, sometimes falling into sensationalism, without giving information about the activist spirit of Anonymous. These kinds of reports, mainly produced by corporate media, usually define Anonymous as “criminals” who aim at creating chaos on the web and ruining people’s lives.

Why this blog and how I work

Public Interest: This blog aims at explaining the media controversy of Anonymous for the public interest. My audience should be anyone who wants to have a clearer idea about who Anonymous are, what they do and why.

 

Method: As a news curator, I collect information from different media platforms, such as online newspaper articles, YouTube videos, blogs (etc.), in order to provide a diverse and complete view on the issue.

 

Transparency: When I convey information, I cite my sources and I link them, so that the reader can check them and find more information about Anonymous.

 

Objectivity: I offer an objective perspective about the media controversy, filtering information from both Anonymous themselves and other credible sources.

 

Diversity: Strongly connected with the value of objectivity, I provide information from different media platforms, like blogs, online articles, YouTube and TV news.

 

Further learning: Posting my sources, I encourage my audience to go deeper in the topic, inviting it to watch documentaries, videos on YouTube and explore the world of Anonymous.

 

Dialogue: I invite my readers to leave comments and critiques, in order to create a dialogue.

Anonymous (YourAnonNews) on Twitter

Anonymous (YourAnonNews) on Twitter | Who is Anonymous? | Scoop.it

Everytime Anonymous start and “operation”, they also create tags, which users can follow, to get instant information about the online and offline protests. Again, Anonymous don’t have an official account, but different ones. One of them is @YourAnonNews. When Anonymous upload videos on YouTube or posts blogs about a specific operation, like the recent Operation Israel, they usually show the tag to follow (#Operation Israel). This way other Anons or simply citizens can get instant information about their actions.
