Myanmar citizen journalists' Oscar moment


"iReport" was the last thing we expected to hear when we watched the Oscars last night, but surely enough, it happened. One of the nominees for Sunday night’s Academy Awards was “Burma VJ,” which told the story of citizen journalists documenting pro-democracy protests in Myanmar in 2007. In the short clip shown during the telecast, CNN’s Dan Rivers could be heard talking about the importance of iReports to CNN’s coverage of the protest there. The clip was super quick, but as soon as it was over, several members of team iReport excitedly jumped on Twitter to talk about it.


These iReports were an early indicator of the power of citizen journalism in places where access was limited. Iran has been another example in recent months.

Click here for some of the images that were sent from Myanmar as iReports, and here for more on “Burma VJ.”

This report is from this morning's interview on CNN with a woman called; "Laurene Fix", after listening to a statement from this (nut!!) it's clear to see that she's  in bed with "Toyota motor company. I could not beleave what i heard her say! After the insident this week in California with that "Toyota Prious", she was ask about what she thought the owners of a Toyota should do if they experience this same problem; her answer was; take it back and pick up another of the same!! This woman should be brought up on charges and arrested for carring on the same lies and fraud on natioal tv as Mr.Toyoda did ! Making these type of stupid and dangerous statements to Toyota owners  should not be taken lightly!!
