“Mobile journalism is both a blessing and a curse,” said Stephen Quinn, Digital Development Editor of South China Morning Post Group, when giving a talk at Hong Kong Shue Yan University today.


MoJo(Mobile Journalism) (is to use-missing tangible subject-reporters/journalists) mobile phones to do reporting. In 2007, BBC News started the concept of Mojo. Later in the same year, Reuters established the MoJo Kit that includes a tripod, microphone and mobile phone for journalists.


"Nowadays, mobile phones are equipped with many hardware and software, which allows us to report news in a cheaper and similar way," said Quinn, adding that traditional reporting kit cost at least HKD40000 while MoJo reporting kit cost only HKD6000.


Quinn said some smartphones even allow journalists to edit videos and create multi-media slideshow(plural) within 20 minutes. As a result, everyone can be a journalist today. However, he stated that although speed is important in news reporting, professional journalists should be aware of the accuracy.


“It is dangerous for journalists to report something that (are-sva) inaccurate,” warned Quinn, pointing out that the job of journalists is to give useful information to the audience. If the information is inaccurate then it would be useless and may mislead the audience, so journalists are better to double-check the news sources.


Good title.
