San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz was apparently asked by a FEMA official at some point to send a memo to ask for assistance. She tells CBS reporter David Begnaud that she doesn’t see things that way. And ICYMI, check out yesterday’s Starting Line for more information on Puerto Rico’s developing humanitarian crisis.
(Apologies for the CBSNews autoplay feature. I haven’t been able to find the embed code that disables it. )
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
