    Found it.

    Apparently the only place who has it, and where the other links to, are this:

    http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-102841

    "iReport"? Nah, I'll wait till it's confirmed from more reliable and trustworthy sources.

    Apple Heart Attack: stupid ireporters!!

    APPLE DENIES STEVE JOBS HEART ATTACK REPORT: "ITS NOT TRUE"
    Henry Blodget | October 3, 2008 9:18 AM

    "Citizen journalism" apparently just failed its first significant test. A CNN iReport poster reported this morning that Steve Jobs had been rushed to the ER after a severe heart attack. Fortunately, it appears the story was false. We contacted an Apple spokeswoman, who categorically denies this.

    Steve Jobs was rushed to the ER just a few hours ago after suffering a major heart attack. I have an insider who tells me that paramedics were called after Steve claimed to be suffering from severe chest pains and shortness of breath. My source has opted to remain anonymous, but he is quite reliable. I haven't seen anything about this anywhere else yet, and as of right now, I have no further information, so I thought this would be a good place to start. If anyone else has more information, please share it.

    We're making calls, but as yet we have no idea whether it's true. Nor does anyone on Twitter, which is buzzing about it. (See the live Twitter feed, which we've embedded below). Confirmation/denial the moment we get it.

    Meanwhile, very interesting that this report appears on CNN's site. If it proves correct, CNN will look great. If it is wrong, CNN's credibility will likely be significantly damaged--and we wouldn't be surprised if this caused them to pull back from association with "citizen journalism." Here's CNN's vision for iReport:
    With this site, we want to share our passion about the news in a way that invites you -- and everyone else -- to share your passion about the news. At CNN we live for news. We love talking about it. And we know that there's a whole lot more to it than what you see on TV or read on your favorite Web site. So we've launched an independent world where you, the iReport.com community, tell the stories we're not used to seeing. And the most compelling, important, and urgent ones may get seen on CNN.

    So head on over the homepage and jump in. Tell your story and see how it connects to someone on the other side of the world -- and build a new kind of news site, one made from communities of shared interests, impassioned discussions and great storytelling.

    ... and the Apple stock tumbles due to another false report about Steve's health.

    I understand the iReporter content for added visuals on confirmed stories, but not for Breaking News.

    More importantly, why was this thread moved to the iPhone forums from the General Tech forum?

    I don't know what you are talking about :cool:. The two original threads that make up this thread were both created in the iPhone forum. When I was merging the two threads together the new default option given by the newer version of the forum software is counter intutive and the complete opposite of the slighter older version we were using I didn't change the direction. :eek:
