Citizen Participatory Journalism in Korea
OhmyNews is a South Korean online newspaper website with the motto "Every Citizen is a Reporter". It was founded by Oh Yeon Ho on February 22, 2000. It was the first of its kind in the world to accept, edit and publish articles from its readers, in an open source style of news reporting. OhmyNews was influential in determining the outcome of the South Korean presidential elections in December 2002 with the election of Roh Moo Hyun.
