I officially became a citizen journalist by being designated the Bronx County Political Buzz Examiner at Examiner.com. According to Jay Rosen, a press critic, a writer, and a professor of journalism at New York University, citizen journalists are “the people formerly known as the audience,” who “were on the receiving end of a media system that ran one way… The people formerly known as the audience are simply the public made realer, less fictional, more able, less predictable.” My first article as the Bronx County Political Buzz Examiner is about the Bronx Census and I look forward to writing more about the politics of the Bronx. So if you’re involved in Bronx politics or have any story ideas please feel free to contact me directly.

I assume you are bragging about your new designation as a citizen journalist. We certainly think it is a worthy description of serious-minded citizens who want to cover the news in their community…and we’re here to help. National Association of Citizen Journalists
well, i was there for 6yrs, us ppl were merely igaronnt puppets without any conscious, they believe whatever the gov has told, naive. u have chosen the right path, being a hk citizen can witness the true world, a world full of different voices and having the ability to be judgemental is what a true citizen should hold, also, the us economy arent doing too good plus its geological state will soon consume its land and become catastrophic. u and i boyh made the right choice, no hurricane, no earth quake, no gun shooting, no fbi nor massacre here, cheers!
