As stranded Carnival Cruise passengers began finally disembarking in Mobile, Alabama, late Thursday evening, MSNBC had NBC News correspondent Mark Potter on the scene to speak with them.
One young lady during her over three minute interview tried to cite a Bible verse that helped her get through the ordeal, but Potter pulled his microphone away and quickly ended the discussion (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Do you have a link to that video? Sounds like a nice contrast to the video this thread is about. Btw, did you happen to watch this video?
I don’t think CNN was expecting all the talk about prayers either. And passengers starting Bible study and prayer groups. They looked shocked but didn’t know what to do about it.
Right on, right on, right on..
Yes, I watched the video at the article on this thread, that is the link.
I saw this video with the reporter cutting the woman off, but I haven’t seen the one you described. I’ve noticed others mentioning it too. The only link I’ve found that might be for that video was in a format not compatible with this iPad. Do you have a link for the video you described?
svcw is describing the Fox News interview. The video for that is at the bottom of the linked page. The one we are all talking about, with the two 20 something girls on MSNBC, is the one linked at the top.
Enjoy destruction! Hope you like fire as well!
I expect nothing less from Godless liberals.
I’ll point this out...because I flip between various news channels. In the day prior to the arrival in Mobile...the news guys were interviewing dozens of folks. I would say at least fifty percent had a southern accent, and noted some religious comments (prayer groups, having faith, feeling God would watch over them).
The comical side of this was only one channel that generally flowed with the comments (Fox News). For CNN, MSNBC, HLN, etc....you could tell they were uncomfortable and they attempted to end the interview within sixty seconds.
Now, it may be that southern folks just have an enormous amount of faith in life, and it’s just Carival’s luck to have a bunch of those folks on board.
It sounds like it was this woman’s having her Bible with her on the cruise that helped her endure the long ordeal & gave her both strength and hope.
Now we can’t have THAT message getting out over the airwaves, can we? /s
Instead of whining and squealing about being victimized, the passenger offered a ray of hope and strength - can’t have that...
On this iPad, the video at the bottom of the page doesn’t work. It must be a different format. I’ve been trying to find that video in a format compatible with this iPad, but I give up.
That’s strange, it looks like the same format as the one at the top. I looked on Foxnews.com but couldn’t find that clip. Bummer!
Yes, it is strange. Now I’m on a PC, and I’m able to watch both videos. They look like exactly the same format. For what ever reason, on the iPad the video at the bottom just appears as a black rectangle that does nothing.
Now I see what everybody’s been talking about. What a striking contrast in reporting.
