The Washington Post has an interesting discussion today about the role of "citizen journalists," and whether folks with no formal training in journalism can carry that moniker.
So many news organizations, MPR included, are trying to encourage more audience interaction in a variety of ways. One of our more established tools is Public Insight Journalism, but we also look for less formal opportunities to have folks participate in discussions over what's going on in our world.
