Love this Inside View on Wendy's Filibuster (and Critique of National Media)

Posted By on Fri, Jun 28, 2013 at 9:09 AM

My spine is still tingling after watching Texas Sen. Wendy Davis' filibuster on Tuesday and the aftermath of how it was covered (and not covered) by the national news.

That said, I have to share this inside perspective that went up on the Good Men Project yesterday.

A snippet:

Yesterday, I witnessed women’s rights under fire, a crippled legal system that didn’t represent its people, a corrupt government body attempting to commit a crime in front of hundreds of thousands of witnesses, and the complete failure of the main stream media. I also witnessed a woman performing a nearly superhuman act to do what was right, the power of the people making themselves heard both in person and online, and the extraordinary value of one young man with a cellphone making sure people saw and heard the truth about what was going on.
