ABSTRACT
The article describes the distinguishing characteristics of noninstitutional media which are Internet-based news resources. According to the author, these kind of media include website, blogs, and wikipedias that are not simply electronic platforms for existing media outlets like television networks and print newspapers. The author also explains that these media feature limited editorial structure, a conversational and contributory relationship with readers and fewer rules related to newsworthiness and reporting format.
