As a journalist in Liberia during his country’s civil war in 1989, Kwame Clement, J.D. '98, realized he was wearing a target. So the 29-year-old fled with his wife in July 1990 and received political asylum in the United States.
You may have noticed that a number of our videos, specifically under the Mystery & Drama program, have a price (i.e. $4.99) in their Video Title. These videos are offered on a pay-per-view, rental basis.
Immediately upon pressing play on the Video, you will be presented with an in-player paywall which will prompt you to pay to watch the specific episode. The pricing on videos varies, but it is typically for 48-hour access to the video. You will be required to register an acount during the payment process, so you may login again and resume watching, within your rental period.
Once again it's taken another "upheaval event" outside the U.S. to warrant coverage by the major U.S. news networks. By now we're all accustomed to the sight of network anchors flying in to take over a story -- usually reporting live from the scene. It says to us that this is an important event worthy of our attention. But it also points to another reality: the big U.S. news networks have little, if any, consistent presence around the world. Fly-ins are how it's done now. Although they may seem to see things differently, when it comes to reporting international news, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and Fox News are all equally blind.
