Citizen journalism organization TheUpTake.org covered the very exclusive press conference today, in which President Barack Obama spoke on behalf of the earthquake-shaken Haiti.
For the past week, Haiti has been dealing with copious amounts of destruction, homelessness, and hunger as a result of the earthquakes – contributing to further financial hardships for the poverty-ridden country.
In the press conference, President Obama affirmed, “Haiti will have the full support of the United States,” which will include emergency medical relief services, and the transportation of water, food, and many other basic amenities. The President also urged Americans and the entire world to contribute to the Haitian victims at Whitehouse.gov.
TheUpTake.org will continue to show the replay of the press conference at http://www.livestream.com/theuptake.

President Obama’s appointee to the Supreme Court Sonia Sotomayor is facing the Senate this week for her approval hearings.
C-SPAN is offering a 4 camera live coverage from the court room allowing each user switch pick their angle. The multi-channel player with refreshing live thumbnails of the streams was developed in 2 days using the power of the soon to be launched Livestream API.
C-SPAN has previously used Livestream to cover the 2009 US elections, broadcasting debates and election-related events through the “C-SPAN Debate Cam“. They also provided one of the most in-depth online coverages of Inauguration Day, as President Obama was taking his oath of office.
See our previous blog posts for more information on these past webcasts:
USA TODAY, Democracy Now, The Real News and CSPAN’s Inauguration Hub powered by Mogulus, and many others broadcast today’s historic event providing online viewers with wide and unprecedented web coverage.
More than 1 million viewers tuned into Mogulus.com and into the channels’ embedded players as President Obama was sworn as 44th President of the United States. The Mogulus audience record was broken with 105,000 concurrent viewers on the network today.
Over 20 channels streamed throughout the day (see grid picture below!), showing the inauguration, the luncheon, the parade, and featuring commentaries from editors and guests.
Here are some screenshots from today’s broadcasts.
Is it a classic case of forgive and forget? This week Obama called on gay Episcopal bishop, Gene Robinson, to deliver the invocation at the ceremonial kick-off to Inauguration Week at the Lincoln Memorial.
Has this addition to the inaugural lineup offset Obama’s pick of evangelical celebrity Rick Warren, outspoken opponent of gay marriage and a woman’s right to choose, chosen to deliver the invocation at the 56th President’s swearing in ceremony?
To talk about whether Obama has fixed his Rick Warren problem are Jane Hamsher, Faye Wattleton, Kenyon Farrow, and Eleanor Smeal.
Hosted by Laura Flanders.
