I figured that the I-Reports message I sent to CNN would be censored or not published but it wasn't. Here's the link: http://edition.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/americas/08/20/hurricane.dean.irpt/index.html

Please do your part to bring to light the problems in the north, we got off easy in San Pedro, many of the people who work in the businesses on this island and support the economy of this country didn't. It only takes a few seconds of your time (or dollars out of your pocket) to make a difference!

Good Job Simon.

Thanks


Writer claims no authority, worthwhile knowledge of any kind, and didn't make love to that woman.

Yes Simon, well done. I am too suprised (pleasantly) that they published your frank commentary.

Simon, This is great, Simon....You noticed that they didn't censor someone criticizing them directly, I hate to poke this censorship issue and do appreciate the board and the hard work of the administrators, but some things we disagree with have to go up anyway or we loose validity of comment/opinion. Our viewers expect a screaming jackass or two and if there are none our value is suspicious.

Simon well written. I came to Canada for a visit while Dean was heading twards AC I was soo pissed off with CNN and the weather channel because they barely mentioned Belize. I became furious when they said they eye is in the best place possible because it was less populated.
Your point was well written. Thanks for putting it out there.
BTW I like many people thank Marty for this forum and all the work he put in during DEAN because I would not know what was happening with friends and family back in San Pedro.
