CNN’s citizen journo app

CNN has launched a “revolutionary” international news app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, reports
The free interactive app allows users to follow news across CNN outlets and provides a section dedicated to its ‘iReport’ platform.

“This is going to be a catalyst for the increase in content that helps citizen journalists around the world engage with CNN, and in turn it’s going to be a way for us to augment the coverage we already have,” said CNN’s Vice President for mobile Louis Gump.





“Before we all sink into a slough of digital dystopian despair, it might be worth considering this: is this a sign of the strength, not weakness, of revelatory journalism in the digital age?”
