Leah Katz-Hernandez: Inside CNN's Building!

TRANSCRIPT

Leah Katz-Hernandez: Hi!! Guess where we are right now??? Take a look around... Ahhh, we're at CNN's Grill! We're actually right in the CNN Building! Wow... how did we get here? You remember yesterday's interview with a Deaf CNN worker Joel Garcia? He talked with his superior and explained about the Deaf Campaign 2008's blog, about how it's deaf-centered, has posts in sign-language, and is all about the unique deaf perspective. He explained all that and his superior was interested enough to become curious to meet with me. That culminated with me getting a VIP pass -- see this -- and I came into here tonight after Clinton's speech. I met with Joel's boss and we had a nice brief chat, exchanged information. Now, I must say I am truly impressed -- CNN has showed interest in me!! Is it guaranteed that I will be filmed by CNN? No, there is no promise of that. But the most important thing to consider is the fact that I have CNN's attention now! Does that mean that I'm important? No, no, that means that CNN's attention is on YOU, the deaf community! That is truly incredible and important. It's exciting -- but not for me, for YOU!! Keep on watching and see what happens... Thank you.

Leah,

Good for you and the rest of the Deaf America community!

I have some contacts with the MSNBC which I personally know Tim Russerts. I happened to met Tim up at Manchester, NH last nine years ago.

What about other competitors?

*waving hands* I hope that you will bump into many well-known individuals at the DNC. I will keep looking for you on the tv screen. :)

Please say big Hi to Arlenee Huffington, my personal friend for me. She is a reptuable blogger and former gubernational candidate for California.

CTD-2007: The national headquarters is in Atlanta. But since the Democratic National Convention, all major news outlets has their offices in Denver for the week. The CNN probably leased a building for a month or two.
