Striking a Balance Between Community Journalism and Citizen Participation
A study of more than 3,000 newspaper Web site users
examined the public's expectations
regarding user-submitted content on newspaper Web sites
and whether it can compromise
the newspaper's brand and journalistic integrity.
Research report includes extensive
executive summary, explanation of findings and data
slides to help guide local publishers
as they seek to further engage their audience and
facilitate meaningful public interaction.
