Maria Hinojosa was on UP w/ CH this am. 9 1/2 years ago...
...she was a reporter on CNN covering the Anti-Iraq-War marches in NYC. I was on DU that morning, posting from my living room w/ an eye peeled on the TV, watching her amongst the crowds doing a spectacular job interviewing people and allowing the anti-war message to hit the American people.
Then, a poster on DU who claimed to be working inside CNN (I'm sorry, but their username escapes me now) posted that the word came down - no more cutaways to Maria and the massive protest march.
I looked over at the TV - Fred Whitfield was anchoring - and waited for the next report from Maria. It never came.
1. I remember listening to Mike Malloy play back the Shock and Awe audio with just minor comments.
I hope I never feel that disgusted and ashamed of my country again as I did when Malloy asked listeners to imagine a mother huddling under a table trying to protect her children from the massive bombing.
