Well it just so happens that the Bundy Ranch showdown began in my backyard. It started out simply enough: A dispute between a rancher and the government over some land and what should be done with it. And although it was in the vicinity of Vegas, I still really wasn’t all that interested in it… until this happened and changed everything:
Now the Bundy Ranch story was making waves nationally, and before you know it (to make a long story short) Brian Engelman was packing up his truck, and making his way over to Las Vegas where we were about to journey off to our first live covering of major media story!
We officially arrived Thursday night, and quickly ran into fellow radio-host Pete Santilli who also happened to be the guy who filmed the now infamous “Ranch Riot” video above. Brian then grabbed this incredibly informative interview with Pete:
Later we had the chance to interview Dave Bundy! My turn to interview, and my goal was to make it quick (5-10 minutes tops) by asking him just two questions he had hopefully not been asked before. However, reality found me woefully short of my five minute goal with absolutely no back-up plan. Lesson learned, then Brian saved the day…
We heard rumors the next morning that someone had shut down the cell-phone communication by the ranch, so we made sure to upload this video (just in case) before we departed:
Brian has an outstanding interview with Margaret Houston (the woman who was thrown down in the “Ranch Riot” video). The unfortunate part is that you don’t get to hear all of the applause as a growing crowd gathered behind me to watch.
Brian has another excellent interview with RJ of the Nevada Oath Keepers! So these are the people that the Establishment and “mainstream” media keep warning us about?
Brian and I give our final report on Friday. I really liked the way this video turned out, but it also came with a painful lesson learned: if you don’t have someone using the camera, get the tallest person in the frame first, or you might make this mistake:
So I had this plan to make one final 20 minute video before Brian left town. My intention was to recap and highlight the Bundy Ranch story along with our personal experience covering it. However, that plan took some sidetracks and sort of suddenly spiraled into a video version of one of our radio shows. Yes, it went on a bit longer than I had hoped… but at some point you just have to go with it and enjoy the ride. And that my friends, is The New American Media…
Here is our final report:
Okay, so we didn’t really finish the story. Maybe we’re not worthy? Thankfully other reporters were on the scene and covered this incredible piece of history:
Thanks to everyone who was there, involved, spreading the word, donating to the cause, watching/commenting on our videos… Thank you for all of your support and for being a part of history!
