Citizen Journalism Report


citizen media
Are Metroblogging authors “Citizen Journalists?” I suppose. Do you condsider yourself a journalist? According to the Washington Post, we are simply bloggers.

Last fall I reported on a survey being conducted by the University of Maryland on this topic. Now, the results are out, and it is interesting material. Let us know what you think.

    What, not a single mention of Metroblogging and yet that Backfence joke gets landscape? Bollocks.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. The references to local blogs are, hmmm… curious and suspect in some cases.

    I’m not sure if I’m more appalled by Wayan’s use of the work “Bollocks” or the crappy survey.
