Comparing Legacy News Sites With Citizen News and Blog Sites: Where’s the Best Journalism?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

While enthusiasm for citizen journalism, blogs, and the like remains strong in many quarters, there has been little research that systematically examines citizen journalism sites and their characteristics. In the present study, we compare characteristics of 363 online journalism sites sampled from 46 randomly selected markets with characteristics of 60 online sites selected to represent what nationally known experts and institutions consider to be among the best examples of citizen blogs or journalism. Our goal was to identify potential factors that may differentiate the most highly touted sites from those gathered in the random sample.
