Citizen journalism

Dear mouse,

Have you heard about citizen journalism?

This is the concept of average people writing the news in the internet.

In some parts of the United States, the idea of citizen journalism is boosted by the widespread popularity of blogging and the series of scandals by well known journalists that destroyed public confidence to the mainstream media.

Although there are questions as to its business viability as regular source of income some advocates of this non-traditional journalism have already put up companies that promise payment for article submitted.

For more of the news, read this.

In a way, we Pinoy bloggers can also become citizen journalists without having to go around for scoop news. We can write about our neighborhood, such as away ng magkakapitbahay, busted street lights, illegal parking, baradong manholes and even huweteng.

The global pinoys can write news about the host country.

citizen journalism...Pinoynalism style.
Suggested topics to choose from:
1). Sino ang kabit ni Temyong.
2). Sino ang doctor ni Mrs. Engracia Booba, na nagbigay sa kaniya ng big-a Booba.
3). Maraming patay na aso sa imburnal namin kaya barado ito.
4). Walang proper toilet drainage ang barrio Tatche, kaya pag baha, maraming lutang na mga balutan ng kababuyan.
5). Walang ilaw ang poste namin, kasi tinirador ng mga bading na nang-huhunting dito.
6). No running water dito sa amin, kasi talagang walang tubig.
7). Ang kapitbahay kong kabit ng isang TONGgressman at ng isang SenaTONG.
8). Ang tenant kong mahilig sa madyong at mga batang 'call boy'.
9). Doctor na tinuli ang kabayo, tinadyakan ng hayop na kabayo.
10).Sinehang puro surot at mabahong kubeta.

suggested titles for PINOYnalism.

Frat,
hindi lang sa citizen journalism yan pati rin sa mainstream media.

Kagaya nang pagbabalita sa TV/

1.Isang buntis na babae, binaril, patay.
2. Kabit ng isang lalaki, binugbog.

oks din yan kaso, minsan ang matataas na tao dito sa pinas gumagamit naman ng tripleG para mahinto yan. kung ang mga batikang periodista ay pinapatay, pano pa kaya ang mga simpleng mamamayan that would taddle. balak ko gumawa nyan pero palalawigin ko muna ang aking talento (kung meron) sa pagsusulat. Lalo na sa ingles! nyahaha
