Firuzeh Shokooh Valle, an editor for Puerto Rico section in Global Voices, visited Reinventing the news last friday to discuss the importance of citizen journalism and how it can help  journalist report on stories from all over the world without having to leave their living rooms. She discussed covering stories in Puerto Rico with help from Puerto Rican bloggers and journalist who had been using the internet to report activities in the country. She discussed the issues that come with following citizen journalist and the problem of accuracy but also spoke about how citizen journalism has helped her to report on stories that she couldn’t physically be at. Shokooh Valle discussed the pros and cons that come with reporting with a high reliability to citizen journalist and blogs. Shokooh Valle has been able to use citizen journalism to tell the stories of people across the ocean without ever being there which is an amazing advancement in journalism.
