Anonymous group launches citizen journalism website

ts citizen journalism site Your Anon News takes its name from the group’s social media news feeds and aims to collect breaking reports and blogs.
The site will include feeds for livestream events "as they are taking place instead of the 10-second sound bites provided by the corporate media".
The group has raised $54,798 (£35,924) to get the site up and running. The money, collected on fundraising site Indiegogo in the account name "Jackal Anon", will be used for development and hosting fees.
More than 1,000 people contributed to the fund and were rewarded with Anonymous memorabilia including mugs, t-shirts and hoodies.
The aim of the site is to bring together and expand its Your Anon news (YAN) service that currently runs on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.
"We know it would be beneficial to our followers to exist as a community beyond simple social media interactions," it added.
Its vision will the same though: "Our goal was to disseminate information we viewed as vital separating it from the political and celebrity gossip that inundates the mainstream."
