Craig's Dream of Citizen Journalism

More on Craig Newmark's thoughts on citizen journalism, this time for AP's Rachel Konrad:

Newmark hopes to develop a pool of "talented amateurs" who could investigate scandals, cover politics and promote the most important and credible stories. Articles would be published on Internet sites ranging from Craigslist to individual Web logs, or blogs.

Craigslist.org gets more than 4 million classified ads and 1 million forums postings each month, and Newmark _ who no longer runs it but remains one of three board members _ is often blamed for decimating classified advertising revenue at regional newspapers. But he says he has no desire to steal readers from mainstream media.


But he believes the reason why newspapers are losing circulation is that too many traditional journalists are willing to quote politicians and business executives even if they're blatantly lying _ merely for the sake of perceived objectivity. He'd prefer an "open source" model of journalism where legions of volunteers act as writers, assignment editors and fact checkers to challenge mainstream journalists.
