Have you already watched the Vice News Tonight mini-documentary on the events in Charlottesville?
It's really powerful, really disturbing, really hard to watch. I don't know a lot about Vice News Tonight, but apparently it's an independent journalism effort receiving funding (and air time) from HBO. This is the first and only Vice News Tonight documentary I've ever watched.
I was really moved by the Vice News Tonight reportage, and by the work of correspondent Elle Reeve, about whom I knew nothing before seeing that report. She did some very fine reporting, I think.
I'm paying particular attention to this issue all of a sudden because my daughter now (since 1 month ago) lives in Richmond, Virginia, just one mile from Monument Avenue, the probable next locus of confrontation.
I haven't ever visited Richmond, but hope to do so one day, now that my daughter lives there.
In the meantime, I'm paying a lot more attention to events in Virginia that I did before.
As are we all.
