What if NOWCastSA hadn't been there?
National attention on NOWCastSA video of Ivy Taylor’s poverty comments helped turn the election, we're told.
Our video went viral thanks to the Huffington Post: ("San Antonio Mayor Suggests ‘Broken People’ Without God Cause Poverty,") Patheos, the Washington Post and Time Magazine. Finally, her quotes made it into the San Antonio Current, the San Antonio Express-News, Texas Public Radio, KSAT, WOAI and KENS.
But what if NOWCastSA hadn't been there? That almost happened.
At the last minute, the underwriter for the 90-minute webcast withdrew its funding. But we stayed, and our cameras never blinked. NOWCastSA's story, the uncut, unedited video and complete transcript are here.
