Saddam Execution

This is just the latest example of a citizen capturing a newsworthy moment with a camera phone. The video is poorly shot, and it landed some guards in a bit of trouble, but now, it's online for all to see.

Sure it's slightly graphic, but the media gatekeepers can't keep this out of the public view.

Just goes to show that this time around the revolution amy indeed be televised.

Is this really citizen journalism?

It's a citizen participating in journalism. I'm sure he was well aware about the significance of the moment. He may not have shot the video specifically with the intention of distributing it via the mainstream and online outlets.
