We are in a unique age — where every citizen now has in their pocket what an an entire TV crew had with them 20 years ago.
So when a freight train derailed and exploded near Baltimore this afternoon, the best shots and reporting came from YOU! And you’re wonderfully foul mouths!
Like the cover shot — taken from Twitter off Brianna Bailey’s feed.
In this video — which an online news site has already branded as theirs, even though it was on facebook hours before they had it — two guys use VERY EXPLICIT language to describe what they’re seeing, and then the day-um thing blows up! (language NSFW)
Here’s the original, “Day-um! That s**t crazy!”
Now you have to admit, that’s much more entertaining than having a staid reporter “Standing By!”. I doubt Derek Valcourt will ever tell you “That S***’s IS TOO REAL!!!”
Here’s some more footage, with more R-rated commentary, this time with a thicker B-more accent.
And here’s a pretty good photo shot via Twitter courtesy of Rich Langford.
Good job, citizen journalists! I salute you!
