    Congrats, CNN. You are contributing exactly what journalism needs -- less oversight, more amateurism. Way to go!!

    Is there no honour in these iReports?

    Who wants to pay for the iMilk when you can get it for free?

    I'm waiting for one of these Citizen Journalists to produce something that's libelous and not merely inaccurate. I pray for the day, in fact.

    Considering that automated web browsers that pull up old articles on Google and Yahoo and an iReport like this can cause a company to lose tens of millions of dollars in stock value in an hour, I don't think libel is even the biggest problem.
    Won't be too long before day traders figure out a way to rig a run on a stock with some carefully placed Internet misinformation.
