CNN opens virtual news bureau in Second Life

Looks like the trend for tv networks to venture into SL is now reaching into the news area. Mediaweek reports that CNN will be opening a news bureau in SL i-report.jpgduring the week of November 5th. An interesting twist to this is that reporting will not be done by embedded CNN reporters, but by SL residents. This experiment is an extension of CNN’s current i-Report, where ordinary people can file in eyewitness reports to the network. Kits will be distributed to residents, enabling them to file news and pictures.

Thanks to Second Life Insider for the lead.
