PPNS at Pittsburgh City Council

PPNS

Point Park News Service students, both photojournalists and writers, sit in on a session of Pittsburgh City Council. During the session the students heard public comments concerning the Jordan Miles police beating case. City residents are given three minutes to express their view points to the assembled council during the open comment period at the beginning of each meeting.

The students, in their role as journalist, used the visit to gain an understanding of the processes and procedures of how democratic governments operate in order to provide accurate information to news consumers.
