Pros and cons of newspapers partnering with citizen journalism sites

Online Journalism Review
Two of the comments collected by Gerry Storch:
* “Citizen journalism can be a powerful tool for reporting hyperlocal news (news that is specific to one community) because people care about their community and have a hunger for finding out what is going on.”
* “[Citizen communicators] are best at reporting breaking events, and not likely to be very helpful for in-depth, analytical or investigative reporting.”
