The purpose of community media is exactly to enable, to be that bridge for ordinary citizens who are producing content—we see that all over the Internet—but content that is not necessarily properly researched, that does not necessarily meet journalistic standards, and does not necessarily have good production values and quality. The purpose of a community media organization—for example, in your riding—would be to enable people who want to create content to learn how to make a good story, to research it properly, and to allow both sides of the story to be reported. They can come in and learn those skills, learn how to use cameras, and learn to post it on a web page properly footnoted.
That's what community media does. It enables the average person to meet those journalistic standards. That wouldn't happen on its own with just an open and free Internet. That's why community media organizations are still tremendously important. Not everybody has those skills. Even the tech-savvy kids who run around with camcorders, as you say, don't necessarily have journalistic training. That's what community media provides.
