Bogus Jobs' heart attack report rattles citizen journalism

An <a href=" http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&amp;articleId=9116182">unsubstantiated report</a> of Apple CEO Steve Jobs suffering a heart attack is emboldening question marks around the notion of <a href=" http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&amp;articleId=9116187&amp;intsrc=news_ts_head">citizen journalism</a>. A user identified only as "Johntw" posted a story on CNN's <a href=" http://www.ireport.com/">iReport</a> Web site Friday morning stating Jobs had been rushed to the ER as a result of a "major heart attack." The user cited "an insider" who he said "opted to remain anonymous" but was "quite reliable."
