NU media

Ever since internet has dramatically grown its popularity, heaps of communication tunnels are created due to its openness feature, sites like facebook, twitter...etc. 20 years later, people begin to debate whether we should let it wide open as it mostly is now, countries such as China, always has this censorship issue with all kinds of media. From my perspective, I think the internet could be the major headache for the Chinese government.
Came to Australia from Taiwan, the land of free access to everything, I was a bit not used to the limited bendwith here. Apparently, this country does something to "protect" its citizens, or shall I say, netizens.
We all came from the era with modem till now, I sort of witness the changing of the whole media evironment. It's interesting that only lately, the Australian news has exposed this new news source fact, which is lots of journalism are now from those online social websites. Whillist, it's nothing new in Taiwan anymore.
In terms of internet gonvornance, I can't help but wonder, if this is the trend that journalists start to dig their news from those none-professional[in most cases] online social network sites, how much credits left on the news??
Should we all set a rule or a watchdog for those online exchanging information?
