Tipping point coming for "citizen journalism"?

UPDATE: Jeff has a remarkable presentation on citizens' media here.

Jeff Jarvis at Buzz Machine really knows what he's talking about.A sample or two:

It's wonderful watching what I think is a global warming in mainstream media toward citizens' media.

We may just be at the tipping point.

The latest evidence of the attitude shift is FoxNews' MediaWatch cordial discussion about major media using citizens (Trey Jackson has the video). It's a nice little wink from Fox that the crawl on the screen as the panel talked said, "You report, you decide."

"I think citizen journalism is a huge force that's going to get greater and greater. There's no stopping it," CNN President Klein said. "As long as we're clear what the audience created and what CNN created, there's room for both in this universe."
