News is breaking on several fronts this week. Check out the links below and contribute your voice to the coverage, if you haven’t already:
VETERANS MARCH FOR RON PAUL: The “mainstream media” largely ignored Monday’s march on the White House in support of Ron Paul by several thousand current and former servicemen and women and their family members and friends. NewsiT didn’t. We were there, covering the event live via Twitter and Facebook. And thanks to contributions from participants, see our complete story, with links to additional photos and even some video. If you participated but haven’t posted your information yet, do so here - we’ll keep updating the story as we receive more information.
STUDENT LOANS: Friday is the deadline to contribute to our story on student debt. How have student loans affected you, your family or friends who are current college students or recent graduates? Help us report this story, and share the assignment with anyone affected by this issue.
MILITARY ISSUES: Have you used the post-911 G.I. Bill to attend college? How well did it work? Did you serve in the military overseas and try to vote in an election? Are you sure your vote was counted? Tell us about your experiences with these two new assignments.
SXSW: We’re gearing up for the huge South by Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Texas, next month. Our first SXSW assignment is posted, with more to come.
Please share these assignments and stories with friends and others to help us grow participation. And don’t forget to “Like” us on Facebook, follow us (@younewsit) on Twitter.
