Should you support Kony 2012?

You’ve watched the recent youtube viral sensation Kony 2012. The video probably stirred a multitude of emotions inside you. You were moved to repost the video so friends and family could view the video. It seems pretty simple right? Stop Kony! Make him famous.

I felt compelled to help after I watched this video. But, then my journalistic side kicked in. I did some digging on the video and its background. I am in no way saying that you should not support Kony 2012. I just think you should be a bit more informed before you decide to re-post the link.

Below are just a few articles I read to help me learn a little more about this viral sensation.
