CBS has launched a citizen journalism website where users can upload video and images of news events with a brief text description from their mobile phones by sending an MMS to the short code "85888" or by email. Citizen journalism is becoming more popular, with some papers such as the Chi-Town Daily, singing its praises.
CBS also has some of its own content on the site, hoping to attract more uploads. They are looking for content covering breaking news, weather, sports and politics.
CBS has also recently updated its mobile news, making it easier for its readers to find relevant stories.
