11 Layers of Citizen Journalism by Steve Outing

  1. 1. The 11 Layers of Citizen Journalism By Steve Outing* *Former Senior Editor at the Poynter Institute and current Editor and Publisher columnist, Outing is a self-described “on-line media pioneer” (steveouting.com)
  2. 2. 11 Layers of Citizen Journalism <ul><li>2005 article’s purpose is to suggest ways news executives can implement CJ into their operations. </li></ul><ul><li>The layers represent a continuum of involvement by the news business to solicit citizen input and collaboration. Starts with relatively “safe” examples and gets progressively more interactive. </li></ul>
  3. 3. 11 Layers <ul><li>1 : Public comments subject to filtering and self-policing </li></ul><ul><li>2 : Citizen-written sidebars to news stories, supplemental pictures and other input </li></ul><ul><li>3 : “Open Source reporting”: Asking readers for guidance on stories </li></ul>
  4. 4. 11 Layers <ul><li>4 : Inviting citizens to blog on newspaper website. These blogs are clearly separated from regular news content </li></ul><ul><li>5 : Newsroom citizen “transparency” blogs ( Spokesman-Review ) </li></ul><ul><li>6 : Stand-alone citizen-journalism site, edited by site owners </li></ul>
  5. 5. 11 Layers <ul><li>7: Stand-alone citizen journalism site, unedited version (anything is published but subject to citizen criticism) </li></ul><ul><li>8: Print edition. Citizen-produced free insert in mainstream print edition. No interactivity but potentially more credible than a website. Sounds backwards! </li></ul>
  6. 6. 11 Layers <ul><li>9: Pro-am hybrid: Entire news organization is a combo of pro and citizen journalism. Still separate areas. Korea’s Ohmynews </li></ul><ul><li>10: Integrating citizen and pro journalism. Both types occur side by side on the same page (theoretically possible, not practiced as of 2005) </li></ul>
  7. 7. 11 Layers <ul><li>11: Wikinews . Anyone can write a story, anyone can edit a story. Could be useful to the pros in certain situations like obituaries ! </li></ul>
