PBS: What we [three reporters] saw the day the Capitol was attacked, 'America Interrupted' Podcast.



Talking to people who were there: "It was a festival of misinformation."

The anger in their eyes turned into hate and then abandoning any sense of responsibility. They were right, had propriety over the rest of the world and the U.S. government itself. They were heroes. More important than other people. But they didn't have a goal. A lot of them were looking for the bathroom.

The president was doing what he often does, watching television.

We came right up to the brink of seeing our democracy broken.

"There's no-one there. ... I also never thought the House of Representatives would be completely unguarded."

Children: "I've really struggled to explain to them what is going on in this country we call home. ... In all the stories I've done and all the places I've been, I've never, ever, found it as difficult to explain to my girls what's going on."

When I was looking for a place of safety, I didn't know what was going to happen, I heard all of your voices: "At times I almost cried. None of you cried, so I didn't cry."

3. Hi ellen!

I actually watched this in your post and as soon as I went to comment, it disappeared. I am so glad that betsuni had posted it as well so that others get a chance to watch it.

2. Excellent interview/chat!

It's almost 30 mins. long, but well worth the watch.
