Crusader with a camera: Nydia Tisdale has been flipped off, called a Nazi, even arrested for recording public officials
Tisdale is, for lack of a better term, a “citizen journalist,” a label that’s taken on greater relevance as video recording has become more ubiquitous and as conventional media outlets have shrunk. Citizen journalists often straddle the line between reporter and advocate. Since 2011 Tisdale has recorded hundreds of videos of elected officials and political candidates in public settings, uploading them to her website, unedited and without commentary.
