Abstract [en]

Title: Journalism 2.0: About the journalist's perspective on citizen participation and its influence

on the news content.

Purpose: The aim with this study was to examine whether, and if so how, professional journalists experience that the production of news has changed as the media development has progressed and the citizens opportunities for active participation in this process has potentially expanded.

Research questions:

  • Does professional journalists experience that the opportunities for citizen participation in the news making-process has changed with the spread and accessibility of new media- if so, in what ways?

  • Wheatear professional journalists experience that the relationship between themselves and their news sources has changes with the spread and accessibility of new media?

  • What consequences can an empowerment from citizens have on the production of news and on the professional role of the journalist?

    Theory: This essay is based on theories about convergence, gatekeeping, agenda building, participatory journalism, news sources and the journalistic profession.

    Method: The survey is based on ten qualitative interviews with ten professional journalists, eight reporters and two web editors from the newspapers NWT and VF.

    Results: The results of this survey shows that the citizens’ opportunities in influencing the production of news has partly changed. The journalists do not experience that citizen participation affects their professional role. Citizens have always had an impact on the production of news but new technology offers citizens and journalists new channels that facilitate the communication and interaction. The gatekeeping process is protecting the decision-making role of the journalist, which restrains citizen participation. The source-journalist relationship has been played down. However, the demand for acting in a source critical way has increased due to an increased amount of information.

    Key words: Convergence culture, participatory journalism, news sources, news production
