Rethinking the Role of the Journalist in the Participatory Age

In Audience, Journalism, New Media on July 26, 2010 at 10:14 am

Alfred Hermida urges both the news consuming (also producing) public and the journalists to rethink the role of the journalist. I am glad to find this because i just started to design a research to investigate this issue:

Journalism developed as a relatively closed culture for the production of knowledge, based on a system of editorial control. Yet new media are characterized by their connected and collaborative nature. The challenge for journalism, and the journalist, is to find a place along the continuum between control and connection, and between a closed and a collaborative media culture.
