Do citizen journalists get paid?

Ohmynews.com recruits a small team of paid professional reporter, however 70 per cent of the sites content is written by citizens.

Some of the contributers on the site, who submit quality content are paid modest fees for their expertise writing. not every piece of writing which is submitted on the site is published as there are so many articles.

Most American citizen journalism sites would take a different approach, they would rarely pay for any articles which are submitted on the site. Ohmynews.com treats citizen reporters like real journalists.

You're concentrating far too much on Ohmynews.com - it's an obvious choice, but there's lots more out there about citizen journalism, and lots more cit. journo sites - try Dan Gillmor's stuff, for a start.

Also, make sure you link to any sources you've used for research! You give too much info without telling us where you got it.
