The rise of ambient journalism

With smartphones everywhere, there is also the potential for para-journalists or citizen journalists to be everywhere. No longer do networks have to wait for a journalist to arrive on the site of an incident. Further, the prevalence of social media encourages people to maintain a level of awareness of their surroundings for possible news events. However, with no guidelines or formal training, there are questions about the legitimacy of these journalists.
