Interesting video as part of the iReport bootcamp.

We'll prove it to you. Here are nine CNN journalists -- including anchor Brooke Baldwin, in the video above -- sharing their most embarrassing professional moments and what they learned from them.

What is the difference between an "assignment" on CNN ireport and an "open story"?

iReport gets a relaunch.

Since launching five years ago, CNN’s iReport has become the gold standard when it comes to traditional media companies utilizing user-generated content. Thousands of videos, photos and stories that began as posts on the site have been featured on CNN’s networks. Today, iReport is making its largest evolution yet with a major relaunch, all in an effort to become a “social network for news.”

“Our hunch is that we could pull in more participation in stories if we create a more personalized experience of iReport,” Lila King, CNN’s participation director, tells TVNewser. “The guiding principle we have been operating by is that we make iReport a bat-signal for participation.”

iReport will still be seeking content from users, and select submissions will still be featured on-air, but at the core of the new site are features that have more in common with social networking sites than news sites

OK, am I the only one a little nervous about this whole iReport project? CNN is laying off seasoned, professional journalists to stream content and stories from some random guy with a video camera?!?!? How are these people held accountable for what they say? It might be useful when people are on the scene of a breaking event, like protests or witness to crime or a tornado, but what are the standards for a developed investigative story? If a CNN reporter makes stuff up, they get fired. If I make stuff up and publish it as an iReport, who calls me out on it? This just seems like a scandal in the making.

Good point re: laying off experienced reporters for amateurs. Less money, less content.

Some people take themselves too seriously as ireporters. I found 1 guy on Vimeo who labels all his ireports as "exclusives" and you get the impression he thinks quite highly of himself. :lol:

CNN ireport has topped 1 million users.

CNN iReport, the network’s global participatory news community announces a major milestone – the platform has reached more than one million registered contributors.

The news comes on the heels of a complete overhaul of the iReport site last November, the launch of Open Story, a storytelling tool that allows the community to participate in the news in real time and the release of a custom built app for Android.

iReport continues to set the standard in citizen journalism and has further plans to grow the platform in 2012. Included in those plans will be new tools and features designed to carry iReport into all the places where people are telling stories, and then connect them back to CNN and the wider web.

You know, it's kind of sad that there needed to be an outburst of iReports from Nigeria for CNN to actually realize it's a story worth following. What were all the editors doing, what were these "country/regional" experts doing not noticing Nigerian protests are important? What was CNN's bureau in Lagos doing not being able to convince anyone back in Atlanta something huge is going on?

Have they recently redesigned the homepage? The landing page is pretty much about the protests in the Arab world. Do they know have one main assignment for the homepage, or is it just for the moment because of the dire situation in Syria?

OK, it was only a matter of time before this happened. I totally called it - see post #26 above ;)

IReport seemed like trouble brewing from the very beginning. The more CNN relies on this kind of self-reporting, the more this will happen and it is damaging to CNN's brand as the most trusted source of news.

I'm surprised we don't see more of this everyday. It seems like it would be pretty easy to upload just about anything before anyone at CNN actually noticed something suspicious.
