This CNN South Florida Weather Report Brought to You By Gay Porn

I honestly have no idea why you'd want to see a video on a CNN website about last week's South Florida storms, when, you know, you could have just looked out your window. But if you did, you might have your citizen journalism weather report brought to you by Collin O'Neal, a gay porn star. 

iReport is CNN's citizen journalism initiative, in which almost anyone can upload self-made video news content. The best videos are tagged, featured on and occasionally show on air. Like this one by O'Neal on the flooding in Hollywood, Florida. He's also contributed videos on his experiences in Colombia, and France's perception of Americans since the 2008 election. His reports often get special status, as opposed to the "not vetted by CNN" warning (maybe Anderson Cooper has something to do with that...).

Everyone from Gawker to Glenn Garvin is getting a chuckle out of the gay porn amateur newsman. But he's not an idiot. He claims to have a bachelors in international relations with a focus on Middle Eastern affairs from Florida International University, and a masters in public administration from the University of Miami. Plus, he seems to be well traveled, as evidence by his travel-themed gay porn site (NSFW). 

Plus, if you're a gay porn star and website proprietor you probably have a lot of free time on your hands and easy access to video equipment.
