The rise of 'ordinary' voice in post-television news narratives has drastically transformed the nature of journalistic witnessing. For some, it facilitates connectivity with and action on distant suffering, yet for others, it fragments global connectivity and creates multiple but insulated communities of 'our own'. It is this changing nature of witnessing, in the move from television to post-television news, and its implications for the moralisation of Western publics that I explore in this paper.
