The sweet smell of freedom!

This was the liberation I was looking forward... Worthy of a Larry King sit in and a CNN SIU edition.

Congratulations Alan Johnston! Now get on a plane, go back home and enjoy your family and friends.

I'm so happy for Johnston!!! And All 360 dedicated was added 15 minutes live. If Paris was breaking news with live coverage and panels, and worthy of a 2 hour 360 live broadcast, why wasn't this?! There are a lot more serious issues involved here and it's their colleague after all! Where's the journalistic solidarity? Johnston's ordeal deserves much more cnn's airtime. Finally a happy day for his friends and family

Maybe once he makes a sex tape he'll get the time he deserves [rolls eyes].

Seriously, it's great to finally hear good news for a change. Oh, and Happy 4th to everyone. I missed chat last night. Geez, the one night I could stay up late and I conked out before 360 even came on.

Such great news for Johnston, the faces of his family members are so happy and joyful. I'm glad this story has a good ending!

I wonder who will get the exclusive interview? Now that would be something I'd truly want to tune into.

I hope Johnston writes a book too.

Happy 4th. everyone!

After reading this post maybe the ties have a meaning, the black and white one might be talisman of sorts (ok I watch Charmed)to keep the bad spirits - obsessive viewers - away.

MANIFESTO

Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
