CNN iReport Awards: Interviews

Interviewing is one of the most important elements of a good story. Getting someone to agree to talk can be a challenge -- and that's just the beginning. Reporters also have to ask smart questions and react quickly to the answers.

 

The iReporters nominated in the Interview category talked with the famous, the infamous, close family and complete strangers and came away with unique insights into their lives:

 

Wisconsin protests

 

 

Jason Seher went to the Wisconsin State Capitol in February and talked with workers protesting Gov. Scott Walker's plan to limit state workers' collective bargaining rights.

 

Seher described the rally as 'peaceful mayhem' and his interviews captured the protesters' passion. At one point, a woman burst into tears when she talked about how the legislation would affect her children.

 

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee

 

San Diego iReporter Chris Morrow sat down with pinup model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee in January, a few months after she gained notoriety for her affair with celebrity motorcycle builder Jesse James. James was married to Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock at the time and the couple split up after the affair went public.

 

McGee talked at length about her relationship with James, how she felt about Bullock and how her children dealt with the scandal.

 

Muslim blood drive on 9/11

 


Ahmd Chaudhry said he was impressed by people's reaction to the Muslims for Life blood drive on the tenth 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks [add comma] so he decided to interview them.

 

Chaudry's interview  showed how Muslim Americans were feeling on the 9/11 anniversary, as well as how non-Muslims reacted to the gesture.

 

Tim Gunn on 'Star Trek' fashion

 

Fashion guru and "Project Runway" star Tim Gunn weighed in on wardrobe choices aboard the starship Enterprise in this interview with iReporter Alan Kistler. Gunn said most of the space fashions on the show looked like today's workout clothers.

 

He also pointed out that Lt. Uhuru and other female crew members' short dresses and boots weren't really appropriate for combat, or sitting down. Kistler's interview generated a conversation on style and gender.

 

My Aunt Dovie is 100 years old

 

Rebecca Nava sat down with her Aunt Dovie on the day before her 100th birthday. She talked to her aunt about her daily routine, which involved drinking lots of coffee,  cleaning her house from floor to ceiling and doing yard work.

 

Nava said she did the interview because she said she wanted everyone to know how amazing her aunt is.

 

Tiananmen student leader on revolution

 

iReporter Neal Moore interviewed Chinese dissident Wu'erkaixi, one of the student leaders of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. He fled the country after the government cracked down on the protests and has been living in exile ever since.

 

Wu'erkaixi  shared his unique perspective on the Arab Spring protests in the Middle East, as well as democracy efforts in China

hello god bless you all. i have a request. i would like for you to call all the religious leaders around the world. and tell them that a man named thomas joseph longobardi has claimed that he is the son of GOD. the time has come. i am only doing this this way because GOD has asked me to tell rhe world the truth. he has said that once the world hears me speak. they will know that i speak the truth. i am who i say iam.

i am here to tell the world who satan is on earth. and i can prove it. i am here to clear the whole worlds mind of satans lies. once this is done the world will be free from all religion. satan does not want this to happen. because he knows this is his last defence to be broken. he knows that iam who iam. and i can destroy his hold on all human beings minds. so that they all may here my father GOD speak. he knows i know who he is and can prove it.

i will give you a small example of who i am. GODS number is 888. my earth father was born on the 8th. my earth mother was born on the 8th. and I the son of GOD was born on the 8th. hence 888. thats what that means. now to gine you a small example of the truth. it said that GOD gave a commandment. thow shall knot have no other god before me right? then jesus came and people called him their lord and savior. right? they prayed to him before god. right? a direct disreguard for GODS commandment THOW SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GOD BEFORE ME. RIGHT? you see what i mean? satan wrote that. not GOD. GOD does not command. he loves.

trust me you know what i just said makes perfect sense. because its the truth. 1 moore example. it was written that GOD created lucifer. right? it was written that he was an angle in heaven who challenged god. so god cast him out right? ok number 1 if god created satan then that means god created evil RIGHT? or what else could you say lucifer turned evil? then that would mean that evil existed someware in heaven RIGHT? GOD is the god of pure LOVE he is incapable of creating anything evil

and evil could not exist in heaven because if it did then god would be no moore. do you realy think my father GOD would cast evil on earth. for what? to tourcher his own creations? GOD did not create satan. he created himself. satan told the story he was an angel. and that he challenged god. and that god created him. do you know why he did this my friends? so people would blame my father GOD for his existance.

satan is a liar. he creaied reading and writting. do you know why? he did it for a lot of reasons belive me. ill give you a few. he did it so people would have their minds separated from their hearts. to get them further away from my father GOD. he also did to teach human beings how to create his weapons to use agints eachother. his sience his math. to create all of his tools to destroy all human beings and gods world.

666 means the 3 evil satans evil spirits that are down below. also they call themselves the black 6 for night.777 means the red 7 on earth during the day. it means the three evil gods on earth in the one and only body that was created by scolics that is on the earth. he is not human. mully scolics is a pure black snake. he is inside the body he created on earth. and he knows i am the son of god and know who he is and can prove it.
