Citizen Media, part 23

Posted on | February 12, 2007 | No Comments

Poynter’s Peter Zollman posts on the KFTY-television “citizen journalism” nonsense… The Santa Rosa Press-Democrat doesn’t appear to have much direct reaction today to Sunday’s San Francisco Chronicle piece, but Pete Golis weighed in Sunday with a new column. His closing line says it all:

“In fact, we don’t have a choice. We will either accept the challenge – or become irrelevant.”

Elsewhere on the Cit-Med beat, the Associated Press is getting into the game. They’ve partnered with NowPublic.com in Canada (a neat site actually) to allow people to post images, video and news. But…

“We’re not just going to take content directly from the contributors and put it on the wire,” he said. “We’re going to edit and verify it just like we would any other contribution,” an AP exec said.

Thank goodness. Letting people do that without a filter would be…
