Problems and Purpose

Citizen journalism is news collected, reported, and analyzed by the public for the public. Citizen journalists are not typically affiliated with any one news organization and their work may be complete self-published and distributed. 

Citizen journalism strives to overcome the barriers to participation in the reporting, collecting, and analyzing of news. While large news outlets employ professional journalists, are funded by corporate entities or governments, and have the ability to vet or censor their content, citizen journalism is 'unfiltered', passing directly from source to reader. As such, citizen journalism is not typically edited or verified and relies heavily on the trust of the reader.
