CEO of Reuter’s on Citizen Journalism

Tom Glocer is CEO of Reuters and he is also a blogger. Where better for him to publish an article called “Trust in the Age of Citizen Journalism” than on his blog?

The article is the text of a speech Glocer gave at “Globes Media Conference in Tel Aviv on Monday 11 December 2006.” About the talk he says: “It’s about trust in media today, taking into account the growing
popularity of blogging and all other types of citizen journalism.”

Reminds me that when I met Lobsang Wangyal, the Reuters reporter amongst exiled Tibetans, he was most interesting in talking about his newly formed Association of Tibetan Journalists. The Association’s biggest task, he told me, is preparing citizens to be journalists by educating them about strong and respected news practices — values, ethics and skills.

Glocer’s talk via Dan Gillmor and the Center for Citizen Media. Dan has his reservations about parts of the talk.

  1. Young Indian research Journalists starts Citizen Journalism In India
    A community news portal has been laucnhed in india
    by groyp of young indian research Journalists in december 2006.

    The community new portal is research work
    of ABC Media Research and Development Center, the research wing
    of ABC News Network Private limited .This portal is fully dedicated
    to the cause of citizen involved journalism popularly called
    CITIZEN JOURNALISM. All news and information have their sources in
    citizens. They create news and information or witness the news but
    they have no relevance in news gathering, processing and publishing
    system of contempory media. The citizen journalism is the voices of
    all those citizens who are creating or witnessing news and information
    around them, the citizenxpress is an open platform for all those citizens.

    Now a day’s fascinating proverb is being engineered i.e. for all (4 all).
    like education for all, health for all, justice for all etc but
    participation by all is no where in their agenda. This gives impressions
    that all who want to do some thing for all still not willing to relinquish
    their position of givers. Which always reflect in their actions vice versa.
    So there is urgent need of a platform, where all will act as givers as well
    as takers. Flow of knowledge can be from either sides depending on the need
    and requirements of situation.
