Drawing on outside sources, including social media and user-generated media, also means letting go of the gatekeeper model, a point made in this article. A poll in Time suggests millennials don't aspire to home ownership the way the previous generations did. Obvious economic factors aside, maybe ownership in general has less perceived value in this age of sharing. To that end, there is a diminishing capacity to "own" or control the story and indeed the whole news cycle.

 

Aggregation is one of the activities that will generate stories with many owners and contributors, but no single gatekeeper. This is particularly true once a story is published and has the ability, online, to take on a life of its own.
