Ann Curry, Brangi, Anderson Cooper, And Twitter

Friday, June 19, 2009

Because I don't really do enough Ann Curry posts, I thought I'd throw out two things I read about over the last couple of days including this quote from her during a conference on how Twitter is affecting the news business and responding to criticisms of major news outlets on the perceived lack of coverage about the protests in Iran as well as international coverage.

Here's what's pissing me off. The reason I have to fight every time to do these stories is because the truth is that it's hard to get the majority of Americans or even a significant number of Americans in NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS's world, to care. I think journalism is a battle and I feel the scars and I see the blood on my sword on a daily basis for fights for foreign coverage to be more present in our broadcasting.
And then this picture of her and Angelina Jolie co-hosting down at the UNHCR World Refugees Day where she ended up saving the day because Anderson Cooper (who was supposed to co-host) couldn't make it.

That's it.
