Thus is an amazing recounting of how student reporters at Florida's Parkland HS back in 2018 "covered" the event as it was happening -- for the record.  It's journalism at its best and most courageous. From the Columbia Journalism Review:

The Eagle Eye staff took photos and videos of students and teachers crammed into classroom closets and, later, of students being evacuated from the building, their hands above their heads. Ryan Deitsh, a staff reporter for both The Eagle Eye and the school’s television station, tweeted videos of students being led into a classroom to hide, and of a procession of students running to safety, surrounded by law enforcement. Another student reporter, David Hogg, interviewed students from inside a dark closet.

Important stuff, great read.
