Yahoo Citizen Video/News Site; Uploading Through Phone

So says this rather flimsy Red Herring story: Yahoo, which recently launched a video sharing site (a la YouTube), may be close to launching a citizen journalism site where users will upload videos of their local events, mainly through camera phones etc.
Uploading would be done through short-codes, though that might not be available at the launch of Yahoo’s citizen video-journalist web site. But the company believes the ease of use made possible by short codes will inspire the less technically inclined to upload their news videos.
