You can be a Borderland Beat 'Guest Reporter'

Borderland Beat has recently added a “Guest Reporter” position.  It’s trial has been very successful, so we are offering the option to all BB followers.

Guest reporters are those of you who see a story, translate the story and send it in for posting.  There is no commitment as in BB reporters.  Often we are sent story ideas, or a heads up to published articles, which we appreciate, and use, but we only have so much time.  By the way, PLEASE, send the link when giving the heads up, if you don’t  will be a wasted effort.

We also will consider original work.  If it is new work, sending in part of the first draft would be helpful.

If you want to help, send your work to either of the email addresses below, they are mine and DDs,  Please give the link to the original story, don’t worry about photos we can get them with the link.  We can use “Guest Reporter” as your reporter name or you can indicate one you want used.

In closing, a BIG thanks to all the new reporters who have come on board.  With theirs and the work from “old” reporters, we are almost back at our previous viewership near 2M per month.

  8. This is awesome! Is there a deadline for turning in the translated article? And seeing how almost everything you read online is crap do we have to substantiate the articles before translating then turning them in?

    1. it is best to send the link to us first. and there isn't a deadline but some stories are time sensitive so it is best to get those done asap.

      by sending the link to us right away we can open a draft so no one else will work on the same story.

  12. Chivis, no me parece una gran idea, sin faltar el respeto a nadie la mayoria de los articulos que se han publicado en los ultimos meses no son muy precisos, habia algunas personas de "reputación" y "solidas" aquí afirmando que habia sido el guano (hermano del chapo) el herido que transportaban los soldados y ya vez que resulto ser falsa información, hay muchos comentarios que se publican de personas que no tienen ni la menor idea de lo que escriben.. toman al periodico el debate y a rio doce como fuentes de alta clase cuando en realidad apenas llegan a clase media la mitad de las veces.

    Chivis.. te he escrito y no me has respondido, me mandaste yes, te envie otro correo y no ha habido respuesta, checalo por favor, igual y si no hay interes dimelo y ya no molesto nuevamente.

    Chivetin.

    1. Truth is in the eye of the beholder of his favorite media. We do an excellent job, no one gets it perfect in breaking news.

      You wrote to me twice, I answered twice, You ask if the email address was me I answered it is chivis of BB, and the other was a TEST, i answered that as well. I can't do more.

  13. please don't stop posting and writing chivis, you bring real life on the ground stuff. you can't find other places. you say you are not a journalist, like it or not you are.

    One of the great questions of our time came closer to resolution last week, when a federal court ruled that bloggers are journalists.

    The Ninth Circuit ruled as such on Friday in Obsidian Finance Group v. Crystal Cox, a complicated case first decided in 2011. The court found that even though someone might not write for the “institutional press,” they’re entitled to all the protections the Constitution grants journalists.
