Here’s a publisher embracing citizen journalists in a big way. The Cumbria News online in the UK, publishers of several papers, is offering to host readers’ blogs on their website. Says the announcement: “… a blog could be a great way to tell the world about your life or work. … The Cumberland News will not censure the content of any blogs unless content is libellous or offensive.”
If more traditional media began to realize that citizen journalists can provide them with thousands more eyes and ears, they would not be so worried about blogs eroding their market.
