KingCast NENPA 2011 wrap up: Who is a journalist in 2011? We'll tell you in 2012.

Update: Here is the journal entry described by The Telegraph's Dave Solomon that I wrote after a contentious open government issue he described durning my bio. No one in their right mind would question the fact that it is journalism. Hell even Federal Judge McCafferty recognized me as "an African-American Journalist."

We promise. That's a generous deadline but sensitive topics require much thought and deliberation free from preconceived notions and conventionality. People need to remove their emotions from the situation and consider the matter with professionalism and a keen eye toward history and the Law.

And the question for Dan Cotter and the NENPA staff then, is this:
In light of Implode Explode v. Morgtage Specialists to the North in NH:
Freedom of the press is a fundamental personal right which is not confined to newspapers and periodicals. The press in its historic connotation comprehends every sort of publication which affords a vehicle of information and opinion.
.....does NENPA have any guidelines as to whether it considers someone any less a journalist or reporter because they have strident opinions?

Dan thanks again for an enlightening and brilliant experience, I look forward to the update next year. And if there are any forums in the interim I would relish the opportunity to work on this. The more they can abuse me, the more they can abuse others closer to the mainstream. The protection of a robust Fourth Estate hangs in the balance.
Last question: Is Mortgage Movies journal protected journalism? Of course it is.

Note that part of the editorial commentary in that 4 April, 2008 report was issued to protect a fellow journalist/reporter from the Telegraph after an angry government official attacked him.

I do that because that is what we owe each other as members of the Fourth Estate.

John Voket rocked it at the forum yesterday when explaining my endeavors to place public records and other questionable government activities online for others to view.

"All [King] wants to do is create a body of evidence for people to come to."

I lived in Pittsburgh for a while and spent every Friday at the Warhol Museum.

I think it's kind of like Lichtenstein or Warhol, as some of the established art World elite initially said

"This is foreign to me and I do not recognize it as fine art."

Now of course today virtually everyone recognizes that these cats are legitimate artists regardless of whether they like them or their approach to art.

It's tough when you are an outsider, or ahead of the curve (I was running video of my own Civil Rights trials in the mid 1990's and was the first citizen journalist to video an entire police murder trial here in Boston) but you just have to keep on being the best you can be, and the Truth will settle out in the end.

Again thanks to Dan Cotter and the entire NENPA staff for this opportunity.
