In a collaboration with Propublica, Jay Rosen’s journalism students have created a fantastic animated, musical explainer on hydraulic fractured gas drilling. Propublica won a Pulitzer Prize this year for national reporting.
Here’s the text that accompanies the video on YouTube:
“My Water’s On Fire Tonight” is a product of Studio 20 NYU (http://bit.ly/hzGRYP) in collaboration with ProPublica.org (http://bit.ly/5tJN). The song is based on ProPublica’s investigation on hydraulic fractured gas drilling (read the full investigation here: http://bit.ly/15sib6).
