Street Team Final Video Favorites

It was certainly a historic election to cover, perhaps in ways I will only understand with time and reflection. Last night as I dozed off and looked over my video camera perched on my tripod, I thought about all the times we spent together. Will I ever be out on the trail again with my mobile pack?…

The National Mall Takeover

In April, there was an Earth Day Concert on the National Mall. I fought the rain, went and reported it – and think it is one of the coolest pieces I did. I got schooled in comedy by Chevy Chase and even better, discovered my peers engaging eachother on the election and issues, with beers in…

It was a massive phone banking telethon – designed by Obama’s national headquarters, organized and put into action by the DC for Obama office. Rachel, a full-time volunteer, was on hand to talk.

Freedom to Object on AP

I started this series on GI Resistance a plastic blue bench at the Quantico brig. I sat across a Marine in a  blue jump suit and wire rim glasses. I could tell he was also apprehensive to see me as I was him. But there we were, face-to-face, two sets of security guard eyes on us, with a clock…
