Sarah Stokely: It's all fun and games until someone wants to sue you: Reporting in the age of citizen journalism

Abstract

The internet has radically changed what it means to be a journalist but at the same time the laws, structures and ethical framework for traditional reporting have been weakened or rendered meaningless. Sarah Stokely talks about the pitfalls, challenges and blissful freedoms of being a blogger and citizen journalist in the post-print world.
