This morning we’re happy to announce a new project, “Principles of Citizen Journalism” — a look at the key principles that we believe are at the basis of journalistic work for professionals and non-professionals alike.
The project was supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The principles also appear as part of the foundation’s Citizen News Network, which Knight intends to turn into a major hub of this activity and which, in turn, is being hosted at Jan Schaffer’s excellent J-Lab site at the University of Maryland.
Here’s the J-Lab press release.
Many thanks to JD Lasica, who spearheaded this project for the center, and the rest of the team that worked on it during the last few months. And very special thanks to all the folks who agreed to be interviewed; as the saying goes, we couldn’t have done it without them.
