Media Musings Blog Archive Citizen Journalism By Angus Verley You could be excused for thinking we live in a glorious utopia where traditional journalism will be swept away by this thing called 'citizen journalism'.
In a few months, journalism app will join the swirling cesspit that is the app store. Its creator, Mark Malkoun, claims it will be "a complete decentralized journalism solution" which will take the place of what he calls "biased" traditional news forms. But it is farcical to claim that 'citizen journalism' could provide more reliable news than professional news organisations. This ever growing rhetoric fails to consider its multiple failings: As social media commentator Josette Rigsby has said of 'Signal', contributors can upload whatever they like and there is no function for fact checking or verification. Contrary burberry mode to what Malkoun says, this opens the door for heavy biases and inaccuracies. In contrast, news organisations almost always have codes of conduct, which work to make the great majority of their news accurate and ethical. And journalists are for the most part not individuals spouting uninformed and uneducated opinion. Journalists either complete industry based training or study journalism at university. Being midway through a journalism course myself, I can say there is a continual emphasis on accurate and ethical journalism. And rightly so, because work not of this standard is not welcome in the industry. This is what opens the chasm between journalists and 'citizen journalists'. We fallen in love with social media, but it giving rise to a form of reporting that we can not trust. Image courtesy of kdonovan_gaddy via flickr 'Citizen journalism' is not being embraced by the public, rather it is provoking backlashes. Episodes of grotesquely unethical 'reporting' in particular have been criticised heavily by the public. Hoaxes, scams, and blatant inaccuracies also severely undermine 'citizen journalism's claim to credibility. One example of this was the death of American football coach Joe Paterno, with reports of his death sweeping social media more than 12 hours before he actually died. Regrettably, these reports were picked up by news organisations. This incident serves as a telling reminder that journalism is not a reliable source of news. Of course journalism is here to stay. Apps and social media will continue to provide news. And news organisations will continue to be attacked for supposed biases. But without means of ensuring accurate and ethical news, it will never fully replace burberry outlet pa professional news organisations. Angus, this is a really good blog topic.
