On Wednesday, Alberto Gonzales was confirmed as the nation's first Latino Attorney General . You know I have written about Gonzales and his nomination on the blog here. Yesterday, I was asked by AlterNet to write a piece about Gonzales' confirmation...and they wanted it by midnight. Um, well here it is ~~ the published article. My first one (!), and boy am I glad it's in AlterNet.
In case you don't yet know about this source of information, AlterNet is a project of the Independent Media Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening and supporting independent and alternative journalism that also includes WireTap Magazine, an online magazine by and for socially conscious youth, and the Strategic Press Information Network, a non-profit public relations consulting organization that provides media trainings to other non-profit organizations to enhance the power of their message. AlterNet's journalistic achievements include being named one of NPR's five "winners on the Internet," winning a Webby in the Print and Zines category and a nomination in the "activism" category, and winning Utne's Independent Press Award for Online Political Coverage.
Wow, and my article is in there! ~ :)
