Sick of the Rupert Murdochs? Sick of the whining by the droning news anchors? Sick of all that crap?
We live in a world controlled by the media. It seems they tell us, the people what we should be eating, drinking, driving, wearing, and doing. They’ve lost touch completely with the public. The people, the citizens, we are the ones who really control it, we know what’s actually important.

Old media is gone and something that doesn’t even seem to know it’s dead yet. Now, they beg the government for money, trying to loot from you and me. I’m sick of it, as I’m sure you are too. With the age of the internet, it opens up the public at large to show them what we want.
We’re not about just the ‘news’. We’re about citizen journalism.
What is Citizen Journalism?
Mark Glasser, a longtime freelance journalist who frequently writes on new media issues, gets to the heart of it:
The idea behind citizen journalism is that people without professional journalism training can use the tools of modern technology and the global distribution of the Internet to create, augment or fact-check media on their own or in collaboration with others. For example, you might write about a city council meeting on your blog or in an online forum. Or you could fact-check a newspaper article from the mainstream media and point out factual errors or bias on your blog. Or you might snap a digital photo of a newsworthy event happening in your town and post it online. Or you might videotape a similar event and post it on a site such as YouTube.
