Principles of Citizen Journalism Project Launch

The Knight Citizen News Network and the Center for Citizen Media (Dan Gillmor) are dual-publishing their new priciples for citizen journalism:

Accuracy, Thoroughness, Fairness, Transparency, Independence and with those comes a list of Resources.

They have included some video links to interviews with people like Doc Searls, Debra Galant and Jay Rosen about these topics.

They also include one interview with me, where I say that I trust bloggers more in some cases. What really matters is that people who report/opine adhere to these principles outlined above.

Great work Dan, JD Lasica and all the others who worked hard on this!
