Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Disabled News Readers

13 Oct 2009: This is awesome; it’s a video that features a group of American reporters who have a mixture of intellectual and physical disabilities.

They met over 10 years ago at a summer camp and decided to start a comedy news broadcast called ‘How’s Your News’.

In this episode, they travel across America in a tour bus from Austin Texas to Louisiana, to New Orleans and New York.

Whilst travelling across the country, they visited a prison rodeo at Louisiana State Penitentiary, where they interviewed prisoners about the rodeo; with some funny reactions once they realized they were speaking to convicted murderers.

They freestyle rapped with some musicians in New Orleans, I love Sue’s lyrics, very funny.

They interviewed bands in Austin Texas at a South By Southwest music festival. They close their night in Austin Texas by singing a song that one of them wrote about New York and they don’t sound too bad.

They bumped into D-list actress Kathy Griffin in New York. They also had a quick chat with Bill Hader, who’s appeared on the hit show, Saturday Night Live and movies, such as Knocked Up and Superbad.

They poke fun at themselves and have so much fun doing their interviews. I think all reporters could learn something from the ‘How’s Your News’ crew.
