If journalism has become post-industrial, we observe facilitators production systems, and publication of user-generated content (UGC) and the performance of professional and amateur sharing. In this context, it is necessary to question how ordinary citizens who practice acts of journalism ethically justify their work. This article draws on three episodes (England, Brazil and the West Bank) to deepen a debate on the approximation of values of amateur and professional journalists. The text also reviews examples of organizations and professionals who strive to harmonize relations in this new media ecosystem.
