Citizen journalists at risk?

On a post by another student I came across a piculiar but also frightening story about a blogger who rose to fame when she was asked to blog about her experience during the London train bombings. Though this is a dramatic example, it shows how the citizen journalist can become exposed, where as a professional journalist employed by a large media organisation has certain protection and help to insure they do not run into legal trouble, or in this case, avoiding running into attempts by conspiracy groups to discredit the work.
