What’s It Like To Be An ‘Activist Journalist’?
Vishal Singh calls himself "a volunteer citizen/activist journalist." He’s part of a growing number of people who have taken it upon themselves to document causes they believe in, whether they’re on the right or the left.
Singh is a committed leftist who found his new calling after witnessing what he considered a heavy-handed police response to a George Floyd protest last May.
He’s been roughed up by Trump supporters, hit with police batons, shot with non-lethal projectiles, and had his foot run over.
Singh consider it his “responsibility to use my skills to show a really honest, embedded perspective of what these protests are like from the protesters’ perspective.”
