Ted Koppel interviewed Michael Brown, head of FEMA on Nightline. He had no interest in the spin, and began at least five questions with “With all due respect Mr Brown, but…”
Ted: We’ve been reporting on the crisis at the Convention Center for a lot longer than just today, but you say that you only heard about it today?”
AmericaBlog has more on the interview and some transcripts…
Koppel: I've heard you say during the course of a number of interviews that you found out about the convention center today. Don't you guys watch television? Don't you guys listen to the radio? Our reporters have been reporting on it for more than just today.
Brown of FEMA: We learned about (the convention center) FACTUALLY today that that's what existed.
