Citizen journalism’s big test is in South Korea.
All eyes should be focused on the National Assembly elections Thursday in South Korea (today is tomorrow over there). AFP has some of the background here but fails to mention the role of OhmyNews! in the rise of the liberal Uri Party. This will be a huge test of the political power of citizen journalism, and if the Uri Party makes the gains predicted, it will further turn all of journalism on its head.
