Korean website’s 40,000 citizen journalists get shot at byline in Herald Tribune
May 31st, 2006

The International Herald Tribune has made a deal with South Korean OhMyNews, reports the The Guardian via Putting People First.

The agreement is believed to be an attempt to boost the Herald Tribune’s coverage of Asia. “Citizen journalists” will be appearing alongside established writers.

… A spokesman for the International Herald Tribune was unavailable for comment yesterday, but the company confirmed that an initial deal would see headlines pulled from OhMyNews on to the Tribune’s website.

“It is not yet clear whether such articles will be treated in a similar manner to those from established news agencies such as Reuters and the Associated Press, but sources close to the negotiations believe it is likely that the newspaper itself could run such stories in the near future.”
