It has been a full week for me! Started off running on Monday morning, attending New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli's annual January media breakfast.
Dashed off a story about the FLU ep then had to run to the City on Tuesday and on Wednesday covered the star-studded no-frack rally at the Empire State Plaza, topped off by Governor Cuomo's State of the State address. Busy again Thursday and Friday... today covering the upcoming Gun Show at Saratoga City center. So busy I totally negelcted to upload any pix to my mobile blog, so I included some here.

Now, on to other business at hand:
|Josh Stearns, Op-Ed: We’ve accomplished a lot in 2012, but when it comes to the fight for better media there is always more to do. There are three critical issues we must tackle in the coming year and one is to strengthen the First Amendment. Much was made of the journalist arrests in the early months of the Occupy movement in 2011. The fact is that almost the same number of reporters were harassed and arrested in 2012 as in 2011. What connects ownership, the First Amendment and public media is the need for us all to take the future of media into our own hands.|
And this story has been HUGE Internationally:
The disturbing gang-rape - and subsequent death - of a young woman in Delhi, India, has elicited global outrage and discussion about gender-based violence. A handful of Caribbean-based bloggers have been sharing their thoughts, not the least of which is that rape is a men's issue.
