The People Journalism is the journalism of the grass root that appears and grows from bottom to top, it is not from top to bottom.
Type of this citizen journalism also can be called advocate journalism, because every writer is able to report or tell their efforts. For example, writing about environment pollution, from firing the jungle to the scolding of hot mud.
They are able to describe all the events that happen in and around their environments and not only the news. They speak of true life and personal experiences. So we can tell this news is not only the regular news but news with feeling. This is why the online newspaper utilizes citizen reporters.
