Paul Bass - The community embedded journalist - 1 hour interview

in

Paul Bass is a different kind of embedded journalist. Raised in New York City suburbs, Bass came to college at Yale University and never really left New Haven, Conn. Now in his late-40s, Bass worked for the city's once-family-owned-daily, edited the alternative weekly and then took a break to work on a book. When he was finished, he realized he couldn't stay away from a newsroom. But instead of returning to the established ones, he created his own, in a spare bedroom of his urban home. Now he's embedded in the daily political, cultural and social life, as editor/founder of the New Haven Independent, a non-profit which publishes one of the most news-rich local online news blogs in the United States. In a one-hour Media Giraffe Project interview taped Jan. 16, 2008, Bass talks about his motivation and passion.
