Washington Times publishes full page of "citizen journalism" stories

    Apparently this plan will be for one full page per day.


    "While we are expanding our reach through this project, we will not be diminishing our editorial quality. Citizen stories must meet the same rigorous standards for accuracy, precision, fairness, balance and ethics as those written by our newsroom staff," Mr. Solomon said.

    My ribs just cracked from laughter. Or the heaving of tears.
  2. Are they all members of the Reverend's church?
    Because that would be cool.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Solomon found plenty of room for both "true" journalism and "citizen" journalism.

    He could always just decree that the paper be cut in half.

    Wait until the citizen journalists get ripped on by anonymous comments on the Times' Web site.

    They're going to love that.

    They probably won't allow comments on the citizen journalists' stories. Hey the newspapers will treat them differently. They are banking on free labor.

    Google translates says it means "The priest will say the statements, it signed the thing."
    What does that mean? Or did you randomly string together Korean characters?

    It probably means: "Community journalism rocks! Visit our Web site!"

    It means "As Rev. Moon would say, it's a sign of things to come."
    and "Community journalism rocks! Visit our Web site!"

    Come on, guys.

    It's not like you need to study anything in particular in school to be a journalist. All you do is write words and sentences. Anyone can do that.

    It's not like studying to be a doctor or lawyer.

    My girlfriend was my Citizen Hairstylist once. I think she was trying to keep other chicks away from me.
