New York Times Eager to Crowdsource Editorial Content

Just as with the search for local weather watchers (“Thanks Betsy from Medford for that beautiful sunset picture!”) or cable news network iReporters  (“check out this photo of the aftermath of the snowstorm in #Portland #Oregon”), the New York Times is now trolling (as in,”fish by trailing a baited line along behind a boat”) for civilian tipsters to feed its newshole.

Exhibit A: This full-page ad in yesterday’s edition of the Times.

    I guess even the NYT finds it challenging to find news worthy stories. Very interesting!
