With CNN’s iReport millions of people are given the power to report (or vent in some cases) about issues or whatever is happening in their hometowns…or the world.
“iReport is a user-generated section of CNN.com” says CNN.
As I checked out iReport for the first time I found it really helpful. In a video titled “Health care reform and you” (which was found snuggled nicely in the “Assignment Desk” section) gave a personal look at (and humanized) what the Health Care Reform means to Americans.
I went on to find videos posted about topics from animals that excaped from the zoo to NYC mural controversy to Irish fiddles.
As reported by CNN iReport there is a total of 436,763 iReports, but only 25,077 have been “vetted” or cleared by CNN.
With CNN confirming and clearing (and possibly editing) these user-generated iReports does it still allow for the people to have a voice? You tell me.
