Facing the uprising competition of citizen journalism, how traditional journalists stand out from them? Stephen Quinn, Digital Development Editor of South China Morning Post believes it is part of a challenge to traditional journalists, but not a threat.

"It comes down to fundamental issues, you have to have a skill or ability that not many people have. You need selling point, that's (so called) USP. What is your USP?" said Quinn, "the web is like a huge copying machine, every time when somebody comes up with any innovative on the web, people copy it. The problem is that, it is so easy to copy what is successful. It forces people (journalilsts) to be perpetually, continually creative and really educated," said Quinn.


Keep Hungry Keep Foolish


To Quinn, journalists have to keep updating new skills to deal with the keen competition and survive in the industry. "Being a journalist is about life long learning, you are always training yourself, you are always learning new skills to keep yourself ahead of everybody else. So I said the tools are exciting, but I didn't say it is easier. Journalism may be easier because of technology, but it is difficult because you have to stay ahead of the curve."Also, he thinks traditional journalists have better policy knowledge, reporting skills and are more professional.
