I believe that Josh Wolf is a journalist. You do not need any formal training to report an important event in the world. Wolf is considered a video blogger, which requires him to record videos and post them on his weblog. He took his camera out into the field and was able to record an important occurrence, which many people quickly became interested in. Wolf posted his video on the web, and it became news instantly. Some critics may say that Wolf is strictly a blogger, and there is no journalism or news reporting involved. I would disagree with these said critics. Journalism is about getting out there and finding a story and then presenting it to the world. Wolf did exactly that, he took the initiative to go out in the middle of a dangerous protest to get a story. He got his story, and posted it for the world to see, he did exactly what journalists do, but instead of writing about it, he let his video tell the story.
