A Day at Reuters TV in Brussels
By: Scott Kanowsky
Last week was insanity for Reuters TV in Brussels. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday all saw stories breaking while we tried to assemble together every able bodied man, woman, and child for Summit coverage. Journalists went missing in Libya--reaction from Amnesty international was needed. Three European Parliament representatives were caught on tape by a British paper of taking money to influence legislation. We interviewed the Romanian MEP being investigated. During it all, cameraman filed in from Amsterdam and Brussels to prepare for the Summit. At first, I thought the amount of people we had working on the story was overkill.
I was never so wrong.
