Here’s one journalism student’s thoughts on helping out with coverage of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte next week:
Some are attending as spectators, a few are serving as delegates—and seven UNC journalism students will be covering it all on behalf of the Charlotte Observer.
“We’ll be available when things get crazy–(and) things will get crazy,” says one of the seven students, Melissa Abbey. “So we’ll be a resource for them when there’s a protest they don’t expect, or when there are different events, or crazy people–we’ll be there ready to go.”
I wonder if she expects to find them inside or outside the convention hall.
