Citizen Journalists Vs. Journalists

This is my YouTube video on citizen journalists to collective intelligence. Here I place my thoughts and views on the integration of citizen journalists and journalists, and how they can assist each other, although how ultimately one could override the other.

McLuhan states that we are an “extension of ourselves”, linking closely to citizen journalists, how they use the media to extend themselves further to produce content that is informative yet also sparking debate, using the mediated public sphere.

“Citizen journalists have become regular contributors to mainstream news, providing information and some of today’s most iconic images, especially where professional journalists have limited access or none at all.” Citizen journalists are becoming an essential part of journalism, bringing stories together blending into the stories and bases made by journalists.
