Thanks to everyone who came to the Deadline In Disaster showing at the Columbia Public Library. For more links about Joplin , check out our blog post from the DBRL Next Blog. Here are some questions about the film that you can respond to in the comments section of this blog post:
- How should journalists decide when to act as a citizen and when to act as a reporter?
- Did this challenge your views of what it’s like for a town to be hit by a tornado?
- Why do you think it was important that the Joplin Globe published a newspaper the next day after the storm?
