...chance for peace is in the next generations, but it seems like the gap is just getting bigger. I feel Israel is really doing what it can to find a way out, and of course it doesn’t always look like that. Most Israelis want peace, me too. What do you think of the new wave of citizen journalism? I think that it's wonderful. The new Web 2.0 shows us that this is really what we want. We are interested in others' point of view, regardless of their status, professional journalists or not. This world is full of opinions, and if we can learn to listen to others' opinions, and not base... (more)
...photographed, pooch. There is discussion and revelations as to the whys and the hows Ariel started on this path. All interesting stuff. But, well, golly gee, it might just be me, but the first two sentences set a tone that maybe this wasn't going to be a really fair discussion of "Citizen Journalism" pros or cons. Quoting Ms. Saar, "A woman in Venice Beach reviews "The Lion King" and declares it the best musical she's seen--of the four she's ever seen."

Many events over the last few years have caused this question to come under serious consideration, not least of all the business that journalism has become behind the closed doors of corporate-owned news agencies. The readily available content of American news is decided around the board tables of these conglomerated news giants. This week gave us another hint at the choosey nature of the American media. Hugo Chavez first became president of Venezuela in 1998 and was most recently re-elected on December 3, 2006. Did you... (more)
... Israeli/Parisian Ariel Vardi who wanted to "create an unbiased, reliable source of local and global news written by a large community of amateur writers and journalists." It's rough right now, but we think we see where it's going, and damnit if it doesn't have heart! Maybe there's hope for journalism in this town after all -- even if none of the journalists in town are part of it. In true citizen newspaper form, Vardi gives FBLA the scoop himself: Q: What is a "citizen newspaper"? A: A citizen newspaper is an outlet where everyone can participate and share interesting news found on ... (more)
Wikipedia.com defines it as a discipline of collecting, analyzing, verifying, and presenting news regarding current events, trends, issues and people. Those who practice journalism are known as journalists. Yet the arguably more scholarly Webster's College dictionary defines journalism as the occupation of gathering, writing, editing, and publishing or broadcast news. And further more the fictional character, Jenny Stagecoat, a toothless orphan whom I just now created defines journalism as candy. Who's right? Who's clearly wrong? Who's just a little wrong? Who cares? Our culture... (more)
