Fred Smith Rally in Beaufort

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 2, 2008

Fred Smith held a rally in Beaufort, and a member of the New Media was there to capture the action:

COUNTY NC NEWS — Yesterday on a dreary Monday evening, more than eighty citizens gathered at the Washington High School in the City of Washington, located in Beaufort County, North Carolina, to attend Senator Fred Smith’s campaign rally in support of his candidacy for Governor 2008. Lee Greenwood, a close friend and supporter of Smith, preformed flawlessly ending the evening event by singing, “God Bless America” with the entire audience. Greenwood is also the official spokesperson for Operation Never Forgotten (ONF), and travels extensively in Iraq and Kuwait entertaining and supporting our Troops deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Hendersonville Gubernatorial Debate Video Playlist

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 28, 2008

Here is my playlist of the debate on Wednesday.
The videos should advance automatically. If the player hangs up, click on the right arrow symbol on the player to advance, or the symbol on the left to go back to the previous video.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Richard Bernier for letting me borrow his laptop so I could videostream the debate to my blogs, and other websites who embedded the video player.

Road Trip to a Debate and a Rally

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 26, 2008

**update** 6.15pm I made it back home after several wrong turns. I am downloading the streamed coverage so I can edit that material into my own coverage, and I’ll start cranking them out in the morning, with a long version for google, and shorter versions for youtube and other video sharing sites. I will also prepare a few snippets from a Bill Graham Interview for the URTV program “Sound Off Buncombe” hosted by Richard Bernier, and a few snippets from the Fred Smith Rally at the Asheville Ballroom.


I’ll be covering the NC GOP debate in Hendersonville at 8 am this morning at WNC Citizens Blog, then I’ll be covering the Fred Smith Rally at the Asheville Ballroom around noon.

I hope to broadcast the first event live, and I’ll be recording the second event. Then, I’ll return home and hopefully have everything processed by 6 am tomorrow, if not before.

I apologize for the frequent dropouts and hope I am still broadcasting. My screen here shows that I still am.

Let’s hope I don’t get pulled over for speeding…
