Abstract and Keywords
This chapter looks at the emerging collaboration between the audience and established media institutions in order to produce news from inaccessible or war-torn locations, and shows that citizens are not only contributing to the news content and comments, but are also taking on the roles of editorial and distribution. It outlines the transformation of news values over time, studying the impact of new media on the press's democratic function, and stresses that the future research in media and public opinion would need news credibility. The chapter also considers the Internet as a way to change the status of the news industry.
