Abstract

With access to a computer and an Internet connection, anyone can act as a journalist today. More than just acting as journalists however, people are acting as publishers, as curators of the news, as editors and as opinion leaders and they exist in addition to the legacy media organizations that provide news through more traditional mediums. The sheer volume of content now available is un-deniable. The question then is: Should government be involved in funding any of it?
