In the hours and days after the Newtown shooting, CNN’s audience responded by sharing thousands of thoughts, tributes and personal stories. CNN iReport, the network’s global participatory news community, lay out some of the community’s best Newtown tributes in an interactive Open Story, a powerful example of crowdsourcing. iReport also invited gun owners to share their viewpoints, which created a respectful forum for users with varying perspectives to come together. More information is on the CNN iReport blog.
Additional Newtown-related content online includes an interactive tribute to the Newtown victims, a testimonial from a man with Asperger’s who gives advice on how to cope with the syndrome, and up-to-the-minute news on CNN’s breaking news blog, This Just In.
