The LA Times’ Don Lee takes a look at OhMyNews and where it stands today:
The headline on OhmyNews’ story could be “Business Is Depressed, Readership Is Down and Backers Are Worried.”
Lee talks to OhMy reporter Kim Hye-won:
Kim had no training in journalism, nor had she worked outside her home. …”Rather than say I’m a reporter, I prefer to just listen to the concerns of friends as if I were talking with neighbors,” says Kim, whose writings have included stories about neighbors helping disabled children ride sleds and street vendors struggling to make ends meet.
