Citizen Journalists and Blogers rights…

“Should bloggers and citizen journalists have an opportunity to get credentials so they can cover Congress the same way mainstream media journalists do?” This is the question posed on an online survey I read.

To try and answer this question with a yes or no is absurd. Of course “Citizen Journalists” and amateur bloggers

must have access to congress, but you can’t give equal access to everyone or Yahoo’s will outnumber trained Journalists 1000-1. 

My contention is that “Citizen Journalists” would better serve the public good keeping the trained media in line. 

Lots of interesting perspectives in the comments section though. Check it out…HERE.

Be sure to come back and let me know what you think.
