JRN 335 Week 4 Citizen Journalism NEW
Citizen Journalism. The most exciting—and, to some traditional journalists, most worrying— development of new media is citizen journalism, specifically, news coverage, usually online, by people who don’t work for commercial news organizations. Some citizen journalists are producing regular reporting for growing audiences. Their focus may be on local communities, as is the case with backfence.com. Or it may be broader, as with the activist indymedia.org, an international collective that publishes online editions in a number of major cities, with a strongly anti-establishment slant.
Spend some time with the citizen journalists at The Third ReportandIndependent Media Center. Compare their reports with the stories in the mainstream media from the same geographic areas. Where does the coverage overlap, and what stories are different in each medium? What sources seem to serve the citizens best?
The paper must be two to three pages in length and formatted according to APA style. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
