Mariosa Molloy’s Blog Online journalism – recognition it deserves and same old scepticism!

Mariosa’s blog highlights the issue that online journalism has become eligible for a pulitzer prize. She writes that online journalism is producing fast “tremendous” reporting that just isnt possible with traditional journalism. Although online journalism is being celebrated in this regard, there are still some cynics that believe that online journalism does not have the same values that traditional reporters have. She writes that traditional values could be under threat with the massive growth of online news. She goes on to mention that like newspapers online reporting is bound to make a few mistakes, it is only natural. The idea that people wanting to get their news as fast as possible does not mean that there will be a loss of accuracy, she says that surely this applies to ordinary journalism also. The main point being made here is that online journalsim should not be struck down as bad journalism, we are in an age where people only want to get their information online and therefore online journalism has ann obligation to make their reporting and news stories as accurate as possible.
