I was so bummed when I couldn’t download the video podcast of Evo Morales giving an interview to Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez on Democracy Now. The latest version of iTunes I have seems to do nothing but eat it, and I don’t know how to go back to the old one (which worked fine in playback, but was S-L-O-W on the downloading). I was forced to view it with RealPlayer instead, and RealPlayer is as buggy as a termite mound on the African savanna. Not to mention that you can’t save the videos from it. Then, by coincidence, I found THIS tonight:
Evo’s excellent interview has been YouTubed!
Granted, there are still some inconveniences; the interview has had to be cut into five segments due to YouTube limitations. (Oddly enough, I’ve seen some YouTubes that were over an hour long, most of them on RadioAporrea’s channel. How they managed that feat, I don’t know.)
But at least, now, this happy fan can get her Evo-fix. And so can you. (Or at the very least, you can finally find out what all the fuss is about.)
Parts 2-5 follow:
I think you’ll agree that Amy and Juan have scored another coup–much as they did when they became the first US journalists to interview Chavecito on their home turf.
Now, let’s see if they can get Rafael Correa and make it a triple-scoop!
