    Dear Sir

    I would like to suggest you a news portal based on citizen or participatory journalism, working in India. Your little support (like listing or posting) can help them to popularize this platform in India.

    Merinews is not just any news organization but a movement to deliver efficiently the duties of the fourth estate. Public opinion is an important area to be left for decisions made by few self-interested journalists.

    To popularize this participatory platform, we need your support. A listing in your “citizen journalism initiative list” (or a posting) can help us to achieve our goal.
    Please act for uncared people in the largest democratic state!

    Visit our site:

    Best Regards,

    Trinity Mirror scoops Consumer Website of the Year for GazetteLive

    Trinity Mirror scoops Consumer Website of the Year for GazetteLive

    Trinity Mirror’s GazetteLive website has won Consumer Website of the Year and Best Online Community at the Association of Online Publishers awards.

    The Teesside site fought off stiff competition from BBC News, the Daily Telegraph, the Sun, IPC Media and others to win the two prestigious awards, at a ceremony at the London Hilton, Park Lane, on Wednesday evening.

    The innovative approach of GazetteLive was highlighted with the award for Consumer Website of the Year 2007. The website hosts a series of postcoded microsites featuring the contribution of around150 bloggers, and is driven from a multimedia newsroom where journalists produce content for both print and online publication. Recognising the groundbreaking nature of the GazetteLive site, the judges commented that it “sets a new benchmark for local news sites….we felt that we were part of the community.”

    In winning the award for Best Online Community 2007, the judges recognised that GazetteLive “delved deeper than ever before into core communities” and praised the way it reached new online audiences and opened up hyper-local advertising opportunities to small businesses and big advertisers alike. Up against some stiff competition from the likes of The Sun and The Daily Telegraph the judges described GazetteLive as “a cut above the other community sites – a great example of how to make local news real, with relevant interactivity.”

    Editor of the Evening Gazette, Darren Thwaites, said: “This is a fitting reward for the hard work and innovation of our whole team. We’ve made enormous progress in the last year, embracing multimedia opportunities and creating a website to be proud of. The challenge for us now is to build on our success. This is an all-round team effort that everyone can be very proud of.”

    David Black, Trinity Mirror’s Group Director of Digital Publishing, said: “These awards recognize the excellent progress we are making growing our digital activities. The awards – given the stiff competition – reflect the innovative nature of the site.”

    Neil Benson, Trinity Mirror’s Editorial Director, Regionals, said: “This is an exciting time for the GazetteLive, and further recognition of the innovative approach of the site, having also picked up an industry award for Regional Website of the Year 2007 in June. The site continues to reach out to the local community to engage, entertain and inform.”

    Do you value the pr distribution services?

    Lately I wondered if there is real value from the pr wire distributions. There are some recent studies on the influence of various social media practices on journalism, but is this mainstream tactic still valued?

    I just popped up a survey and while certainly not overly scientific I am hoping to see if there is any consensus. Your participation and thoughts would be appreciated.

    Would you be the same Paul Bradshaw who interviewed Rev. Rick Warren at some point in the past? The interview starts out: “People ask me, What is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven….” The interview is all over the Web but with no source cited, other than your name. I’m a journalist myself, and I like to know THE source. Can you help? Where was the interview originally published? Thank you, sir.

We have websites in 19 countries throughout mainly Europe and Latin America, including one in the UK. The Educaedu point of difference is that students who want to study overseas have access to information about programs and courses offered in other countries, all through the same portal.

    Dear Team:
    We wanted to approach you in regards to an initiative which may be useful for Online Journalism: Opolis Secure Mail provides free, encrypted email and messaging services, whereby the sender decides what the recipent can actually do with a message and its content. And, the sender can always monitor and track emails (also to whom – if allowed – these were forwarded).
    Our thoughts are in regards to investigative journalists, who may benefit from this application, especially when working on highly sensitive reports. Interestingly enough, the service works from every host PC, and working with Opolis there would not leave any “traces” there either.
    Would be great, if this were of interest to you.
    The Opolis Team is also avail for any questions you may have.

    My name is Adam Chadwick. I am a former New York Times copy-editor, who, unfortunately was part of the lay-offs in the newsroom this past December with the company. For the past year I have been working on an independent documentary film about the U.S. newspaper titled “Fit to Print”.

    The film focuses on a broad number of issues facing our current newspaper industry crisis and the large transition within general reporting these days and the rise of grassroots and citizen journalism. I’m contacting you because of your blog. I would love to hear of any major news stories you have broken on your site or perhaps any major corrections you have caught within the legacy news media (which would have otherwise not gone reported or corrected). I would love to hear more about your involvement with this and potentially set up an interview with you at some point.

    To find out more on the project, we have a website (under construction) at with a teaser trailer and complete synopsis for the project.

    I can be reached at adamgchadwick (at) gmail (dot) com

    Is investigative journalism dead?

    I wasn’t sure where to post this, it’s of critical importance though that intelligent people read this and understands it. The future for America is in jeopardy. Whether you’re motivated to become a highly paid journalist, make a name for yourself, or become a part of history, in order to live in a free democratic society, I urge you to read this, draw your own conclusions, and share it with the world.

    My name is Aaron Fleszar, you don’t know me, but the story I want to share with you is 100% true. I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. Whether you believe me or not, I ask that you read this all the way through, because there’s plenty to research and form your own opinion.

    In March of 2008 I cracked a code online that is written across thousands of websites. These websites are selling every money making opportunity you can think of, from mystery shopping, to paid surveys, to every aspect of affiliate marketing and affiliate marketing education. By making fun of a group of scam artists, I discovered that this group is enormous, highly sophisticated, and positioned to make billions by destroying the US economy. They are Al-Qaeda.

    When I first cracked this code I reported it to the FBI. A number of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists make up this code. For example, Wanted Seif al-Adel is claiming to be Mark Joyner and Noordin M Top is claiming to be Armand Morin wanted for the financing of Al-Qaeda. The code is made up of aliases with some political overtones, look a likes of CEO’s, and media moguls. It’s sophisticated, it’s dynamic, and if there was anything remotely easy about breaking it, the feds would have done it long before me.

    Without going into great detail and allowing you to follow up on the code itself, I’ll share with you what I got out of it. A great deal of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists make up this code. This means whoever these people are, they must not be “on the run” and acting alone, but rather have always been part of this organization. This organization, Al-Qaeda online, appears to have run the last presidential election on the most highly ranked site in Google search, Youtube. Now I never thought anything about Obama, but it appears that Osama Bin Laden, much like these “internet marketing experts” who are terrorists, may have only been a spokesperson. It also appears that Osama’s name is a code and that Osama represents Obama and Biden (Bi)n La(den). It sounds ridiculous, but these people have been putting this code together for decades.

    9/11 itself was an intelligence failure of epic proportions. It appears that the events of 9/11 were a stepping stone to a much larger plan. That plan appears to be to overthrow the US government. I believe the attacks on 9/11 were symbolic to an attack on capitalism, our foundation. I believe that the FBI had a similar theory about Obama, given his background with radicals such as Bill Ayers, and radical preachers. I’m sure they also thought Osama Bin Laden could be a code, and that the most wanted terrorists having connections to US embassy bombings in Kenya and Indonesia was more than a freak coincidence for Obama to have a background with both areas as well. This code online connects the dots between everyone’s theories.

    It appears that a coup has taken place. Since Obama got elected, it appears unelected officials in Washington are using him to flush out the remaining members of the “New World Order” plot. After being tortured for over 3 years now, denied speaking with anyone in government, denied an attorney, denied a lawsuit in federal court, not to mention a million other things, I’ve been able to deduce quite a bit. The feds have also slowly taken over the media over the last several years.

    The feds are creating the stories, the headlines, they’ve recruited writers and moderators, and are doing everything they can to control the rate at which this information leaks out. They are trying to get everyone to focus on the 2012 election while discrediting the media. The only people left on this earth who can spread the truth are bloggers who understand the importance of this story and their first amendment rights.

    In attempting to release this story a month ago, the government took a preemptive strike by releasing Obama’s birth certificate, then a few days later, fabricated the story about killing Osama Bin Laden. Several major news sites are not allowing new registrations, comments are being deleted, and many un-moderated sites are now moderated. If they cannot delete a comment that starts to get attention, they’ll pull the link to the story from the main page on the site, this has happened repeatedly at Yahoo and The Huffington Post. The feds had ample time before the election to take down the biggest players, which would have created enough chatter publicly to take down any remaining threat. They decided that justice isn’t served in a court of law. The feds are covering up this story and confusing national security with job security. If you don’t want to live in a totalitarian regime operated by unelected officials turning elected officials in puppets, expose this story.

    Thank you,
    Aaron Fleszar

    We are building a new platform on which you can easily publish, read, and share digital magazines: Currently, we are privately inviting journalists, editors, writers, and bloggers to be the first to publish digital magazines on Magsty. You will be able to create unique magazines under which you can publish articles for the world to read and share.

    What differentiates Magsty from a blog you ask? 

    Well, other than the technologically revolutionary semantics that are going on underneath Magsty’s hood, there’s the smooth, elegant browsing and reading experience we’re working on that is unmatched elsewhere. Readers can seamlessly browse through all of your digital magazines on a single platform, and the pioneering page-swiping user interface makes blog page scrolling look like it’s 1999.

    We are working very hard to launch Magsty for beta consumption in the coming weeks. These are exciting times for journalism, and we believe that Magsty just might be the next major step forward in our industry. So stay tuned, post your email on our landing page, and kindly invite fellow associates and society members to do the same for updates and our launch date at
