Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

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.

A month later, I was watching Shock and Awe...

Wow.

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.
