Fake AT&T story on iReport.com

The talk of the web today is a brewing fight between AT&T and 4chan, a popular message board, over alleged censorship. Late last night, iReport.com was co-opted into the online scuffle.

 

Around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night, some fraudsters posted iReports claiming that AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson had died. The stories were false, the iReport.com community spoke up, and iReport.com's moderators removed the fraudulent content from the site. And that's exactly how iReport.com is meant to work.  

 

It's important to note that the fake story about Stephenson was never used on CNN's news platforms in any way. And on iReport.com, it didn't get the "on CNN" stamp, which sets iReport.com apart from other user-generated content sites by letting users know that CNN has verified the details in a submission and approved it for use on CNN.com and CNN TV.

 

This kind of fraudulent behavior goes against everything iReport.com stands for, and it won’t be tolerated. We're proud that you - the iReport.com community - are likewise committed to putting such false rumors to rest.

I worked for AT&T for 30 years and I know they are regulated by the Public Utilities Commission and would NEVER block access, the fine for this would just about bankrupt them if they did.

They also had a report i saw saying Christina Aguillara (sp?) had died, I was impressed how fast it was removed after it was found to be untrue
