It's been a few months since we launched 3Speak to support and promote freedom of speech. Today we are excited to announce the launch of a special program to on-board Citizen Journalists from all over the world.
3Speak's Citizen Journalist Program
In order to be a 3CJ (a Citizen Journalist on 3Speak) one must be willing to film local political events in an unbiased way. A 3CJ (3speak Citizen Journalist) should do everything they can to capture a story from both sides, and ask questions from each party involved, without putting a bias on the event.
Citizen journalism refers to the reporting of news events by members of the public using the Internet to spread the information. Citizen journalism can be a simple reporting of facts and news that is largely ignored by large media companies. It is easily spread through personal websites, blogs, microblogs, social media and so on. Some types of citizen journalism also act as a check on the reporting of larger news outlets by providing alternative analysis.
A 3CJ's role carries huge social responsibility which can be a difficult and selfless task, especially if the journalist is reporting events that inflame political tensions.
