News War

By Josh Marks, published on Feb 22, 2007

...The first two episodes put into context the confrontations between the press and the Bush administration since the president took office, and the thin line between the freedom of the press and national security concerns in our post-9/11 world. Part three is a must-watch for BrooWaha contributors and anyone involved in citizen journalism. It is titled "What's happening to the News" and examines the challenges facing traditional media and the rise in citizen journalism. Bergman takes viewers into the L.A. Times newsroom to witness the major shakeups going on downtown. It... (more)

By Fantomas, published on Feb 18, 2007

Mayrav Saar from Fishbowl LA (blog for media professionals in LA), wrote a short post about the launch of BrooWaha New York.

FBLA wrote about the 6-month-old Web site when it first launched and noted founder/editor Ariel Vardi's desire for the site to be *the* super-local news spot of Los Angeles. While Old Media-types scoffed, Vardi quietly met his goals. On the site he writes: "I have personally noticed a significant increase in the overall quality of the writing on the website.... (more)

tsarfatit - The first Francophile Jewish Network

By mikewinsc, published on Feb 14, 2007

...The first Francophile Jewish network With very limited budget, resources and time, they are really making a difference.

Interview with Glenn Koenig, Photographer for the LA Times

By Ariel, published on Feb 11, 2007

When the LA Times was working on an article about our very own BrooWaha a few months ago, I had the chance to meet Glenn Koenig, one of their Staff Photographers, when he came to my house to take my picture. Because I have always had a passion for photojournalism, I had a great time observing Glenn at work. I was able to chat with him during the shoot and acquire a few photography tips! We kept in touch and he gracefully accepted to grant BrooWaha an interview and share his thoughts on photography and the state journalism today. The interview is reproduced below: When did you become... (more)

Jack Daniels and Tennessee Williams

By Steven Lane, published on Feb 4, 2007

...Simply put, what consenting adults choose to do in their personal lives simply is none of my business. I try to apply this philosophy to all things sexual, religious and, in spite of a Bush White House, politics. It has worked well for me for a very long time. I recently wrote a piece for Broowaha that detailed a short period of time I was fortunate enough to have spent with Christine Jorgensen in Hawaii in the 70's. She was a great lady and it was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with her. At the end of the story, I mentioned we spent an afternoon with Tennessee Williams. ... (more)

BrooWaha Woo Hoo!

By Soulglo, published on Jan 25, 2007

I haven't been a Broowaha contributor for very long, but so far so good. I've been browsing the site today and I am very impressed with the quality of the articles and authors who contribute. Media outlets such as this are what make America great, not only do we have freedom of speech, we have forums like BrooWaha where people of all ages, ethnicities and political opinions can share their ideas and points-of view. It can be difficult for aspiring journalists such as myself to find places that are willing to publish what we have to say. Since we don't have mile-long resumes, we are often... (more)

"Offensive", "WTF", "Who wrote this...?"

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 14, 2007

...encounter an individual, a group or an organization that in our minds “does us wrong?” Take this one step further, it is possible that we have done someone else wrong on the same level? When I wrote that article I actually contemplated the consequences of its posting. Of course BrooWaHa is not liable for anything I write, however, it does have the option of refusing to publish anything I do write with my only recourse being to either rewrite the article or write a different one entirely. I took a chance on it even being published knowing that I would then have to wait to see ... (more)
