We are CNN

A few months ago, we launched a new iReport assignment that was a little different from the rest: instead of inviting people to share news stories, we asked people to post videos that could be part of a new CNN marketing campaign. The videos show the ways people stay connected to CNN, even in some of the unlikeliest places.


In April, CNN stitched many of those iReports together into a video presentation that kicked off CNN's Upfront presentation to advertisers. That's kind of a big deal: CNN's presentation was all about CNN's unflagging commitment to quality journalism, its history of innovation, and what's planned for the future. And the first thing the room full of people saw was iReport.


So first, thank you. Thank you for being part of this extraordinary community, and for contributing day in and day out to this revolution in news.


Second, the video! Take a look. (And by all means, when you're finished, go listen to the full version of Omekongo's CNN rap.)

I wish I had received credit for my part of the package.

Hey Chris - obviously this one looks a little different than the typical CNN piece featuring iReports. Rest assured, if these are used on CNN TV, we'll include the courtesy names for all the videos!

I understand Lila. Still would have been nice to be credited for the presentation as the other iReporters.


Not being paid by CNN all I can ask for is credit for work. :) Especially during a presentation "That's kind of a big deal"
