Stephen Colbert riffs on CNN's iReporters with his 'Me Reporters'
The Colbert Report
Stephen Colbert weighs in on CNN's recent decision to lay off 50 employees -- "nobody important, just editors and photojournalists" -- by praising CNN's use of iReporters, its name for citizen journalists. "Why buy the cow when you can have it shakily videotape its own milk for free?" Colbert asked. He then has one of his "Me Reporters" run down the day's headlines, which he reads from the front page of a USA Today still in a newspaper box. || Related: CNN’s redesigned iReport will look more like a social network than a news site (Poynter.org)
