US Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham supports a proposal to require special prosecutors in police-involved shootings. I sat down with her for New Mexico in Focus to talk about the legislation.
In May 2011, I traveled to Turkey with a group of New Mexico reporters and writers. We met with Turkish journalists to talk about press freedom, culture and democracy. Many of our questions were about political and cultural changes in Turkey, a country that’s important for Europe and the Middle East. The Turkish journalists were open about their struggles and humble about the challenges they face, including death threats and lawsuits.
Some amazing families also invited us into their homes for dinner. Our conversations reminded me how important it is to connect with people around the world. It’s critical for journalists who want to write about the complex history and culture of Turkey.
Here’s a conversation we had about the trip on KNME-TV’s New Mexico In Focus
I interviewed the candidates for Lieutenant Governor in this year’s June primary for KNME’s New Mexico InFocus. The Democratic side had five candidates and the Republican side had two.
KNME also had great coverage of the race for the Republican nomination for Governor. There were five candidates on the Republican side: Susana Martinez, Allen Weh, Janice Arnold-Jones, Doug Turner and Pete Domenici Jr.
UPDATE, June 5th: Check out Gwyneth Doland’s interview with Susana Martinez. She’ll face Democrat Diane Denish in the November general election.
Health Care legislation has been a major national story in recent months. Now that it’s passed, New Mexico InFocus decided to bring in a group of state leaders to talk about the changes
We talked about Medicare and Medicaid, fears in the small business community and what the changes might mean for low-income and rural New Mexicans.
