Citizen Journalism Startup Plans Global Expansion

Apr 10, 2010 11:17:43 AM - thecolombotimes.com

All Voices, a “citizen media” site that is trying to create a kind of crowd-powered newswire service, today announced an ambitious expansion into 30 countries that it believes aren’t getting enough coverage from traditional media, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Egypt and China. In effect, the company is attempting to create a Reuters-style service that brings news and insight from places that traditional media entities aren’t covering, either because they don’t care or because they’ve cut back their foreign reporting budgets.
