Abstract

An experimental, collaborative watchdog project arose in post-earthquake Haiti, incorporating concepts and practices from the broad collection of media experiences known as ‘alternative and community media’, but also drawing heavily on classical journalism traditions and practices, and on more recent developments in US journalism education. Taking a look at its theory and practice adds to the debate on the term ‘alternative’, and helps make the case for leaving it behind.
