A new ISIS video was released today featuring British cameraman and hostage John Cantlie. He criticizes the bombing of Mosul University by the U.S. which he says happened about 3 months ago. The video was released by Amaq News Agency which while not an official ISIS news agency like al Hayat, is ISIS affiliated. [More...]

I don't know how long the video will remain on You Tube, but here it is (no violence)

    Back in the day. I did shoot some news shows, but didn't like it.  There were always people shooting people somewhere in the world and I could have chosen to go and film them.  After working with some of the news guys on sport shows, and listening to their stories, I decided to stay with sports.  Usually news cameramen don't make much money, but they offered me big bucks to go to Cambodia, and I wisely declined.
