Participatory Journalism

CNN iReport is CNN’s participatory journalism initiative for the “audience” to become the reporter apart of CNN’s news coverage.  The iReport users can contribute anything from pictures, video, and written content.  All content seen on iReport unadulterated participatory journalism. The content posted on iReport are not edited, fact-checked, or screened before they post. It is purely the audiences’ work.  A resource such as iReport is a great opportunity for anyone to have a voice and even allow for bias in journalism.  If iReports are compelling enough CNN could even make their story apart of the CNN’s news coverage.
