So I noted that my photos and my website were shown on CNN the other day, well I am going to be back on CNN. The weekly "On the Story" show is filmed tonight and will be shown at 7-8 p.m. ET Saturday and 1-2 p.m. ET Sunday. Today I got a FedEx'ed yellow pelican case containing a Mac Mini and an iSight. During the show "correspondents give you the inside word on the stories they cover each week" and I am going to be the featured "internet correspondent". Hopefully CNN won't spin it like Deutche-Welle spun it (
starting at 8:00 [it is already down]), where they called me an "activist protesting the [HR4437] bill".
Update: Well that went pretty smoothly. I'm looking forward to seeing the show. They definitely didn't spin me as an evil blogger or an activist. Everyone on the crew was very nice and I actually enjoyed it. Hopefully I didn't look too nervous. Btw Abbi told me that the Saturday show will be preempted for some other coverage, but it will be show again on Sunday and possibly late at night.
This morning I was contacted by CNN Internet Reporter, Jacki Schechner. She wanted to know if she could use my photos from the Gran Marcha on The Situation Room. I said go for it and she just let me know that my photos were featured at 5pm EST on the show. I didn't get a chance to see them so if you did and happened to record it somehow, please send me a copy! Here is the transcript from the CNN website:
