Media Musings Blog Archive Enter the Interloper The media industry is a temperamental beast that is going through a rapid phase of evolution.
Newspapers are increasingly being superseded by online news content and social media sites are charting a new course in news gathering and distribution. This challenger has many guises and many platforms from which to publish information. The explosion in online blogging has arguably created an alternative source of information from that offered by traditional media outlets. Bloggers, vloggers and commenters are now part of media landscape and are seemingly here to stay. Editorial cartoon by Doug Marlette. What does this mean for the future of news? Big question and I have no real answer. Citizen Journalism is either heralded as thesaviour the industry needs as the death of responsible, balanced reporting. Newspapers and publications associated with media outlets are accountable for what they publish. As reputation is based on accuracy, there is accountability and transparency within published articles. The fear associated with the rise of citizen journalism is based on the anonymity of cyberspace, thus lack of accountability. As well as this, there is a real issue of dodgy information being credibly presented. When making a foray into the glut of information available online, it becomes essential to be a discerning reader. But even with finely tunes BS detectors, this can be tricky. The rant of a pissed off blogger will come across with all the subtlety of a raging bull and is easily detectable. But danger lies in biased reporting presented as the whole truth. This can be especially slippery to mentally catch without a qualified background understanding of the topic under discussion. Lack of training is another factor that needs to be considered. A couple of months ago I read anarticle in The Age about an Australian teenager finishing school and ducking over to war torn Libya to do a spot of reporting. I'm not disputing his cajones but I question whether this represents a growing sense of arrogance towards journalism as a profession. People believing that they can bypass the training and head straight to the 'real' stuff poses both a real risk for their own safety and the quality of the product they present to their audience. News is everywhere and journalists are not omnipotent. It is not feasible to expect complete coverage from news outlets. It is inevitable that some events will slip through the cracks and in this lies the true value of the citizen journalist. Where do you think citizen journalism fits into the media landscape? I really liked your piece! Citizen journalism is a tricky subject. While it great that blogging offers anyone the opportunity to write to an international audience, sometimes I feel as a consequence, the quality of online journalism is tarnished. Don get me wrong a few of my favourite bloggers don have a fancy degree to their name but I think citizen journalism has helped to unintentionally discredited journalists. I guess it largely due to the nature of technology these days and how it led to everything being much more accesible. In addition to the blogging phenomenon, anyone can become a photographer, stylist, musician, novelist etc. I guess it just a sign of the times, but it makes me question where us journo students stand.
