Immersion Journalism or Immersionism is a style of journalism similar to gonzo journalism. Like Gonzo, immersionism details an individual's experiences from a deeply personal perspective. An individual will choose a situation, and immerse themselves in the events and people involved. Unlike Gonzo, however, it is less focused on the writer's life, and more about the writer's specific experiences. Proponents of immersion journalism claim that this research strategy allows authors to describe the internal experience of external events and break away from the limiting pseudo-objectivity of traditional journalism. Critics of immersionism (who sometimes call it "stunt journalism") argue that by using such methods, writers are just "playing tourist" in the lives (and often tragedies) of other people.

So yeah, I get daily updates as to the scope of this dreadful disaster, and the destruction of the ocean life.
If I relied solely on the mainstream media, I wouldn't know that there is any problem over there!
