Reuters Ambitious Plans For A Golden Age Of Journalism
Among the big-name speakers at We Media was Chris Ahearn [link added], president of Reuters Media [link added]. Whether by coincidence or design - probably a little of both - Reuters began its push into consumer media just as the industry began to tackle the new frontier of user content and community," she reports.According to Kiss, "Ahearn said it takes place one person at a time, encouraging interaction with the community, promoting positive ethics and dealing with problems forthrightly."
"Across that frontier is a future where Reuters would augment its professional journalism with the source material and eyewitness accounts of millions of people around the world. This future, said Ahearn, is one which will be regarded as a golden age of journalism, where reporters work with specialised communities of reliable and trusted sources and stringers, and where technology provides new tools and information that paper-based journalists could only dream about.
