SOUTH KOREA'S 'CITIZEN REPORTERS'

The increasingly popular South Korean online news site ohmynews.com has more than 26,300 of its readers registered as "citizen reporters" who account for about 80% of the site news coverage (the rest of which is written by ohmynews's 38 professional writers and editors). The mainstream press is critical of ohmynews's journalistic methods, but senior editor and founder Oh Yeon-ho says that his intention is to "say goodbye to 20th century journalism," by showing that every citizen can be a reporter. "We put everything out there and people judge the truth for themselves."
