Astroturfing Story For Newassignment.net
March 16, 2007
Jay Rosen's newassignment.net website enables ordinary people become investigative journalists. Visitors to the website can both contribute story ideas or sign up for existing stories. The site has a number of paid editors who give assignments and choose the top stories.
I think one story would be to conduct a detailed analysis of astroturfing in the United States in corporate America, the music industry, and politics in western democracies.
The astroturfing project is a community project sponsored by Paull Young and Trevor Cook on TheNewPR/Wiki.
I think the community could extend the project to newassignment.net.
