Video: Rania Khalek Reports On Day 1 Of Democratic Convention

Journalist Rania Khalek, who Shadowproof sent to Philadelphia to cover the Democratic National Convention, reports on Day 1. Kevin Gosztola speaks to her moments after Bernie Sanders’ much anticipated speech. She describes how Sanders delegates reacted to him and what she learned from talking to delegates about whether they would ever support or hold signs for Hillary Clinton.

Khalek also shares what it is like to cover the convention as a journalist for an alternative news media outlet. The security zone is like navigating a maze. Plus, Comcast is sponsoring the convention, which means the corporate political extravaganza for Clinton’s coronation needs the cable guy to come out every other hour to fix the poor Internet service.
