Social newsgatherers watch the unwatchable — the sort of graphic visuals that, a generation ago, would have required a visit to a crime scene or battlefield. The worst that humanity has to offer is at their fingertips. UGC experts discuss the challenges they’ve identified in their newsrooms and steps they’ve taken to address them.
