The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
You may have noticed a new assignment asking iReporters to show off their creativity by sending in their Etch A Sketch artwork. The clever topic came from iReporter lamichaela , who shared the idea on our iReport Facebook page . She noted that the Ohio Art Company, creator of Etch A Sketch, is turning 100 this year – what better time to ask for iReports?
We also received some spot-on suggestions from zennie62 , such as asking iReporters to show us their commute to work. We loved lamichaela's idea and are thrilled with the excellent Etch A Sketch iReports that have come in so far.
Do you have the next big assignment idea? What would you like to report on? You can share your thoughts on our Facebook page or below in the comments field. And, while you're at it, be sure to become a fan of iReport.com on Facebook!
Hey there - I'm sure you'll be having an assignment/category for reports on election day, November 4th, but why not also have an assignment/category about
problemspeople encounter during the election? You could name it "Problems at the Polls." Let us citizen journalists give CNN the scoop on exactly what goes down at thousand of polling places across the nation!
Great suggestion, maddogza. We are definitely planning an assignment about voter problems. iReporters, be sure to have your cameras ready at the polls!
Excellent Etch-A-sketch! We requested&received our absentee ballots--and we've voted. We look forward to CHANGE.
Hi I do understand, and appreciate the good work the democrats are doing to help America get out of the current crisis. I was not a factor of news and used to be brief by my mom, but now I am the one briefing her on political issues. Obama has connected to many of Americans, and I am one of them and I am only 21 years old.
my name is Elvis born in, Cameroon. now living in Texas. I wish I could vote for obama but I came to USA as an asylee and not authorize to vote. I am move by the vision of obama and democrats that any body can be anything wish in life. the world today is more bright as I personally see it. I can now see the new world that has never been seen before since the beginning of humankind. the world of peace, unity, connecting with people of different views, progress, good judgment , love, and wisdom that is coming from new generational young citizens of this world, impact by obama a worldwide figure.
All this being spoken, I see obama as a messiah, a bridge from old ideas to not only new but modern ideas. obama is that one. obama is my hero. I am doing my own little campaign going around spreading the message of democrats to make obama be the next president to change America back to the respectful nation it has always been. I am making good progress convincing lots of young people to vote for obama because he has the vision of a president with new ideas to change America for better and good. Obama is the one America needs now in 2008. He is ordain and destine by god. I have help to make many people vote since I can not vote. in return I want obama to help participate to make Africans unite and come together as one. I am still 21 yrs and wish to see that come to pass
To end my mail, I belief in unity and the biggest issue in my mind now is to unite Africa and bring us Africans to one vision and stop violating the needs of the children of the motherland ,Africa.
I need to mention something on palin, it is so nice that the state of alaska,pays for her babysitter, middle class women who work, send their children to day care and pay half of their salary. why can,tshepay outof her own pocket forher kids care? not the tax payers
CNN, ABC, & CBS views of this election are shaping the results. Fox news seems to be the best source for unbiased news. Obama fans, he claims that he was only 8 years old when Ayers did his terrorizing and he knew nothing until more recently. Read this article, the Chicago Times showed Obama endorsing an Ayers book in 1997. Here is the link: http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/10/20/obama-praised-searing-timely-book-ayers/ Between his endorsement of Ayers radical views, his $800,000 donation to a group associated with him, his disrespect for our soldiers in harms way, his wifes racist views, and his lack of experience, our country is already in bad shape, he will destroy us with his spending, elitist attitude, his "robin hood" ideas of taking from the working man to give to welfare. We must keep him out of the White House....Vote responsibly.
FOR REPORTERS - It has been reported the RNC spent 150K for clothes, hair & Make-up for their VP Canidate. That a lot of money to spend, more than many peoples homes cost.
My question is simple and I wonder why it was not an automatic follow-up question for reporters.
Did the RNC also spend money for clothes, hair & Make-up on the 1st dude and the rest of her family. After all they are in the spot light as much as she is.
Why did CNN distort the Byron York story with Palin? Your interview with her led me to believe the conservatives were attacking her where the actual story was a complimentary to one her.
Etch a Sketch.....The first Laptop computer with graphics. To clear the screen, just turn it upside down and shake it!
I would like to invite you to a new forum called http://www.viewmyviews.com
CNN should get a scientific opinion on the issue of race. Physical Anthropologists will point out two things:
1. If Obama is half black, he is also half white
2. There is no such biological concept as Black or White race. That is just a social myth. Biologically, there is just a HUMAN race.
I signed a contract that states in part: I will defend the constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic.
Need to wash our flag...gots politics on it!!!
Unable to upload photos, getting stuck halfway through
This is the 2nd time im trying to upload a report. It is very frustrating and annoying as I have to reload and do the report again and again, and then keep forgetting what I had typed in the previous report. Please be kind enough to attend to this matter
