DENVER - In the crowded newsroom at 9NEWS (KUSA-TV), my colleagues and I watched in in frustration.
We were selected by the judge to provide live video to all television outlets on the planet of the first court appearance for the suspect accused of killing 12 people in a crowded Aurora, Colo. movie theater.
It was not going well. I could sense the expletives being hurled at us from every control room and newsroom across the face of the globe.
A few minutes in to the court hearing, the video and audio froze-- a little bit at first-- and then so much you couldn't make sense of what was happening.
