This is what citizen journalism looks like

A few months ago Bicycle Mark of Citizen Reporter visited Cambodia and chronicled his visit to the killing fields. It's now a tourist destination.

Sometimes it's important to stop in the middle of a frenzied political campaign and take a look at the things that aren't covered by the mainstream media. The blogosphere gives everyone a platform to produce content. The best may not be the most popular, but it's important to let every perspective shine through.

You make it sound as if Mark, through his blog post/reporting, put the Cambodia killing fields on the tourist map.
