Bloggers Getting Help On Two Legal Fronts

Citizen Journalists Are Getting Aid In The Courts And Legislatively


Bloggers and other new media journalists are fighting for a seat at the big media table. The latest efforts are aimed at securing equal rights for reporters who write exclusively for the cyber-realm. These efforts are being made on a couple of different fronts.

First of all, making sure that both professional and citizen journalists who work exclusively for online media are included with more traditional journalists in any laws that are passed to protect journalists. Secondly, activists are making sure that online professional and citizen journalists have access to legal help in court battles. Both fronts are being seen by media activists as essential to making sure that all who perform journalistic functions are equal-class citizens.
