Redirected from: collaborative citizen journalism

Definition: citizen journalism

News and commentary from the public at large. Using wiki sites and blogs, anyone can contribute information about a current event. Also known as "collaborative citizen journalism" (CCJ), "grassroots media" and "personal publishing," the concept behind citizen journalism is that many volunteers help to ensure that the information is more accurate than when reported from only one source. See wiki, blog and user-generated content.
