“The freedom of the press, protected by the First Amendment, is critical to a democracy in which the government
is accountable to the people. A free media functions as a watchdog that can investigate and report on government wrongdoing.” -ACLU

A journalist is an individual that collects/gathers information in form of text, audio, or pictures, processes them into a news-worthy form, and disseminates it to the public.

“Citizen journalism, also known as collaborative media, participatory journalism, democratic journalism, guerrilla journalism or street journalism, is based upon public citizens “playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing, and disseminating news and information.”

Citizen journalism is recognized by the ABA.
