YouTube launches citizen journalism site

While YouTube has accepted various news-style reports and information from contributors, it has created a separate page to highlight reports and to teach people how to become citizen journalists.

Ever captured a natural disaster or a crime on your cell-phone
camera? Filmed a political rally or protest, and then interviewed the
participants afterward? Produced a story about a local issue in your
community? If you’ve done any of these things or aspire to, then you’re
part of the enormous community of citizen reporters on

, and this channel is for you.


Reporters’ Center is a new resource to help you learn more about how to
report the news. It features some of the nation’s top journalists and
news organizations sharing instructional videos with tips and advice
for better reporting.”
