SCMP Editor: mobile journalism offers both good and bad consequence

3rd April 2012

The uprising of mobile journalism contributes lots to media industry, yet at the same time brings threats to the industry, said Stephen Quinn, Digital Development Editor at South China Morning Post.

Quinn said that the influx of smartphones and new mobile network plans bring convenience to journalists, as journalists nowadays can simply complete their reporting with the all-in-one device in their hand.

“Journalists in the past used to do their live broadcasting with many devices such as the hand-held cameras, microphones, and notepad. There’s no doubt that journalists benefited from the invention of all-in-one cellphone as they no longer need to have many equipment in hand at a time. This also greatly reduced the cost of journalism,” said Quinn.

He said the mobility of journalism increased due to the uprising of mobile journalism. “Reporters can do their reporting immediately if they see big news happening around, and they can post their news story to the web immediately, spreading the news at a faster pace,” said Quinn.

Quinn continued, “the accessibility and handiness of mobiles provided opportunities for citizen journalism; everyone can turn themselves into reporter and write news stories anytime, anywhere.”

He believes that professional journalists should differentiate themselves from citizen reporters by “bringing newsworthy stories to audiences but not ordinary stories, and at the same time uphold professionalism and journalistic ethics.”

Quinn pointed out that mobility of journalism is a double edged sword as it not only bring benefits and at the same time causes threats to individual privacies.

“You have no idea when you will be filmed by others. There have been cases where people in public were being recorded in videos and posted online. Laws concerning privacy definitely require revision so as to protect citizens’ privacy in a better way.” said Quinn.
