Embedded video from CNN Video I had the pleasure of sharing my iReport story with CNN’s anchor Richard Lui who’s a fellow Cal Berkeley graduate like myself. The original video on CNN is below and I told my story live today at CNN Headquarters. Thanks to Henry Hanks of the CNN iReport team and to the producers at CNN.  Original video: ...

If you’re on Twitter you may have noticed – or may not have seen — that I just landed in Denver.  But here I am after having caught a flight from Oakland to this hub with the intent of catching another flight to Atlanta.  That flight, UAL 7515, which was to leave at about 7 PM, was delayed to 9:19 PM, giving me time to catch up on stuff like blogging.  I think this is the fourth time I’ve been at DIA this year, the other three trips courtesy of my work at the Democratic National Convention.  But...

Banks not saying where bailout money is going – The Denver Post: “WASHINGTON — It’s something any bank would demand to know before handing out a loan: Where’s the money going?

More At The Denver Post: “The Continental Airlines 737 jet that departed a DIA runway Saturday night traveled nearly a half mile through fields, then up and over a taxiway and airport service road like a 4-wheeling Jeep before coming to rest on its belly a short distance from an airport fire station, a site visit for news media revealed today.The National Transportation Safety Board took a pool of reporters and photographers to the crash scene for a 20-minute visit shortly after noon today.The tracks made by the plane’s wheels...

As I write this, I’m sitting at something called The Specialty Media Center, sponsored and ran by Microsoft. It’s a simple affair, with tables chairs and a computer setup in the back. There are two couch stations with plasma screen televisions tuned to CNN. It’s a great place to upload videos or — as I’m doing — install this blog report. Right now, it’s 12:25. I’m about to upload a video featuring Cornell West and Tavis Smiley — in fact, I’ll do that now — then will...

But before I state them, let me explain that I have supported the idea of an Obama / Clinton ticket for some time. But these reasons have caused me to be less enthusiastic about that, and to reject the idea of her name in the nomination process. 1) Senator Clinton lost the primary. For reasons that have been explored...

Ok. I’m back from Denver and Invesco Field and a great tour and also meetup and walkthrough with Oreo of the great blog DemConWatchBlog.com Lots of news to report, which I will do in a separate blog. But some teasing. I learned that the total convention schedule is not finalized and that the media’s premature in what it’s reporting — not that the Hillary Clinton speak date is wrong — there’s more to come. Invesco Field itself is a huge and well-equipped facility that makes me wish Oakland would...
