Details:As John Owen writes on page 220 of Chapter 12, “The debate rages across journalism about the legitimacy of those who are now called citizen journalists and contribute their blogs and mobile photo videos to websites, broadcasts and newspapers. The mainstream media may have misgivings about the quality of citizen journalism but that hasn’t stopped them from using their websites, news holes and airtime to showcase the outpouring of user-generated content.†This UGC, as Owens calls it, has the potential of enriching and improving journalism in the years ahead. But the opportunities for sharing experiences, opinions, and expertise threatens to undermine the fundamental purposes, principles, and values of good journalism, as well. Discuss the impact of bloggers and citizen journalists on the coverage of international events. Is there a danger that traditional newsgathering will suffer as a result of the citizen journalism movement? Is it even necessary for citizen journalists and bloggers to strive to achieve fairness, accuracy, and impartiality? What is the long-term impact of this new wave of reporting on politics, both in the United States and globally? The paper must be three to four pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources other than the textbook to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
