Sticking a fork in citizen journalism

Tim Porter’s got a great zinger describing the emerging craze to label everything normal people post as “citizen journalism”.
He writes: “Stick a fork in it. “Citizen Journalism,” as the moniker describing John and Jane Q’s ability to create their own media, is done. The shark has been jumped.”
Tom goes on to say: “I’m pretty sure what “citizen journalism” is not is CNN soliciting photographs from viewers and then putting a few of them on its web site. It’s more like the visual equivalent of the man-on-the-street story. Maybe what CNN is doing should be called “postcard journalism.” Am I being too cynical?”
