+ - CNN Tries out the Slashdot format

certain death writes "CNN Has released a "Beta" version of a new service named iReport which seems to be user submitted news stories with the catchy and buzzy worded intro as follows:

"Welcome to iReport.com from CNN!

Welcome to a brand new beta site for uncensored, user-powered news. CNN built the tools, you take it from there. All the stories here are user-generated and instant: CNN does not vet or verify their authenticity or accuracy before they post. The ones with the "On CNN" stamp have been vetted and used in CNN news coverage."

While this seems interesting, it also seems pretty familiar...I wonder if they will rate folks with the same wonderful system that the original uses... I can't seem to get rid of my bad karma..."
