Can Citizen Journalism Trump Censorship by Omission?

Ever since I heard the term “censorship by omission” as used by Dr. Mercedes Lynn de Uriarte of the University of Texas, it has stuck with me and I have used it often in my own thinking about public journalism, citizen journalism and citizen media in general. Basically it says the poor and minorities have been left out of the mainstream media.

The Black Family Channel with headquarters in Atlanta will be incorporating citizen media into its Urban Reporters TV program beginning in January, with the aim of getting minority voices heard. The Black Family Channel’s citizen media producer is Amani Channel. He has a blog entitled MyUrbanReport and he did this video interview with me.
