New Citizen Video Outlet in Korea

Arirang TV is promoting a new show called “My Shot,” where anyone can shoot their own story to air on the internationally aired network. I’m personally a little suspicious of how successful this will be, considering that Arirang’s mission is as a PR tool of the South Korean government. So don’t expect any hard-hitting investigative citizen journalism to make it through the producers.

That said, I’ve stated before that not all citizen journalism has to be anti-establishment hard news. A piece on one’s own neighborhood or camping in the Korean mountains is just as legitimate as any other piece of citizen journalism.
