Mainstream media ( MSM ) are those media disseminated via the largest distribution channels, which therefore represent what the majority of media consumers are likely to encounter. The term also denotes those media generally reflective of the prevailing currents of thought, influence, or activity. [ 1 ] Large news conglomerates, including newspapers and broadcast media , which underwent successive mergers in the U.S. and elsewhere at an increasing rate beginning in the 1990s, are often referenced by the term.
The concept of citizen journalism (also known as "public" , "participatory" , "democratic" , [ 1 ] "guerrilla" [ 2 ] or "street" journalism [ 3 ] ) is based upon public citizens "playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing, and disseminating news and information." [ 4 ] Similarly, Courtney C. Radsch defines citizen journalism "as an alternative and activist form of newsgathering and reporting that functions outside mainstream media institutions, often as a repose to shortcoming in the professional journalistic field, that uses similar journalistic practices but is driven by different objectives and ideals and relies on alternative sources of legitimacy than traditional or mainstream journalism." [ 5 ] Jay Rosen proposes a simpler definition: "When the people formerly known as the audience employ the press tools they have in their possession to inform one another." [ 6 ]

" Corporate media " is a term which refers to a system of mass media production, distribution, ownership, and funding which is dominated by corporations and their CEOs . It is sometimes used as a term of derision to indicate a media system which does not serve the public interest in place of the mainstream media or "MSM," which tends to be used by both the political left and the right as a derisive term.

January 13, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Journalists have certain legal protections when it comes to revealing sources. But do those same protections extend to bloggers? That question keeps popping up with increasing frequency in courts across the country, and there's no single answer. But in a Cook County case, a judge ruled that the authors of a popular California-based website do not have the same rights reporters do. Last August, the website TechnoBuffalo published an image of a manual for Motorola's new Droid bionic smartphone before the manual was publicly released. TechnoBuffalo said the image had come from an anonymous tipster.
Part of the reason why I write about the media is because I am interested in the whole intellectual culture, and the part of it that is easiest to study is the media. It comes out every day. You can do a systematic investigation.

I think a better term for what I’ve been calling “citizen journalism” might be “networked journalism.” “Networked journalism” takes into account the collaborative nature of journalism now: professionals and amateurs working together to get the real story, linking to each other across brands and old boundaries to share facts, questions, answers, ideas, perspectives. It recognizes the complex relationships that will make news. And it focuses on the process more than the product.
[This is a draft of something bigger, so reader feedback is highly appreciated.] With all the buzz abut Jay Rosen's latest brainstorm, New Assignment.net , I thought it might be useful to take a step back and typologize some of the citizen's journalism projects that have either existed in the past and continue to exist today. There have already been some overviews of the types of CJ projects that could exist, along with some examples that flesh out the speculations, but it still might be interesting to look at what has existed, starting from the "beginning," more or less. Here goes:
(Read Part One) Yesterday, as I was completing Part I of my post on "actually existing" citizen journalism projects, Nicholas Lemann, my Dean at Columbia and very well-regarded a New Yorker columnist, wrote an article that was fairly critical of citizen's journalism. Much of what he wrote can be tied in to this here Part II (can I just start by saying, however, that it would be awesome if the New Yorker had a way to let readers comment on Nick's article itself, rather than depending on bloggers to carry on the conversation for them?
“ Citizen journalism .” It’s one of the hottest buzzwords in the news business these days. Many news executives are probably thinking about implementing some sort of citizen-journalism initiative; a small but growing number have already done so. But there’s plenty of confusion about citizen journalism. What exactly is it?
My recent article here on Poynter Online, “ The 11 Layers of Citizen Journalism ,” generated a lot of e-mail back to me — comments, feedback, and tips about projects and trends I didn’t mention. In the spirit of the topic, I’m including the great information that people sent me on this webpage. The information significantly adds to the discussion already underway in the feedback area . And as the citizen-journalism ethos demands, the writer of an article does not know it all; readers should be able to add what they know, in order to enhance and supplement the original piece. (I decided not to rewrite the original article with reader follow-up information, because I felt that would be too confusing.
