Fox News opens door for ‘uReporters’
U.S. broadcaster Fox News said Monday it would reach into MySpace for citizen journalism reports that would be featured on its broadcasts.
A new partnership between the two companies would allow give
uReporters from MySpace the chance to upload reports that would
have a chance to be featured on Fox News, the companies said in a joint statement.
Fox News would control the editorial content it gleaned from the
MySpace uReport community, the statement said.
This synergy with Fox News reinforces what MySpace is all about — providing users the ability to share, explore, connect and consume, Chris DeWolfe, chief executive officer and co-founder of MySpace said.
I look forward to seeing what they come up with when presented with the opportunity to be featured on-air, he said.
Chairman and CEO of Fox News Roger Ailes said the contributions from the online community
will be substantial.
