ohmynews.com

One very good example of a citizen journalsim website is the online newspaper ohmynews.com. Ohmynews.com was set up in 2000 in South Korea by Oh Yeon Ho, who wanted every citizen to be a reporter.

This type of websites are changing the definition of journalism and who can be a journalists. Ohmynews was the first of its kind to actually publish articles which were written by its readers.

The online newspaper was influential in the outcome of the 2002 South Korean presidential elections with Roh Moo Hyun being elected.
