Stuart Allan identifies several pressing issues concerning on-line news of the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. In assessing its form and content, special attention is devoted to the ‘citizen-produced coverage’ generated by ‘amateur’ or ‘personal’ journalists. He suggests that their eyewitness accounts and photographs called into question several key assumptions underlying the conventions of traditional news work. Accordingly, this article proposes that the day's on-line reporting marked a turning point in the ongoing reconfiguration of what counts as journalism in the global network society.Development (2003) 46, 30–40. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110418
