The Digital Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy

Oxford University Press

One of the most important changes over the last decade has been in the business and practice of journalism in countries with large Muslim communities. This chapter reviews the ways in which the internet has changed the organization of the newsrooms and the resources available to journalists. It documents the rise of an important new political actor—citizen-journalists. Equipped with a cell-phone camera or blog, they have had tangible impacts on the local and global news supply during political and security crises.

Keywords:   journalism, Muslim countries, citizen-journalists, internet, newsrooms, blog
