HDNet posted a preview of what we can expect in its 25-minute episode of photographers’ rights, which premieres tomorrow.
In the above clip, we can finally see what took place after I entered the Douglas Road Metrorail Station with a camera that fateful day.
We can see the female security guard immediately order me out of the station, even though I had paid my fare.
And we can see the beret-wearing male security guard slap the camera out of my hand and confiscate it, refusing to give it back after I repeatedly asked for it back.
Obviously, photography was really not banned at the Metrorail because nobody made an attempt to stop us from entering the station with cameras during our successful photo protest.
Tomorrow’s episode will feature an interview with Tasha Ford, the South Florida model who was arrested for videotaping cops arresting her son, as well as a segment on Anthony Graber, the Maryland man facing 16 years in prison for uploading a video clip of a cop pulling a gun on him.
Below is a cut-and-paste from HDNet correspondent Greg Dobbs detailing tomorrow’s episode.
Our program “World Report” airs tomorrow (Tuesday) night. As always it is on at 9pm Eastern time, 8 Central, 7 Mountain, and 6 Pacific. Then it airs again in each time zone three hours later. If you have a high def TV but don’t know where HDNet is on your set, you should get us if you’re on DirecTV, Dish Network, Comcast (in most but not all of the country), AT&T Cable, and most smaller (but again, not all) cable systems in the US and Canada. Sometimes we’re listed in the on-screen guide as “HDNet,” sometimes shortened to just “HDN.”
If someone doesn’t have high def or otherwise can’t watch HDNet, here’s another way to see the piece: by each Wednesday morning after each Tuesday night, you can download our program to your computer (in fact you can download every World Report episode from the last two years) from the iTunes store for a buck-99; if you’ve never done that before, it’ll involve a one-time visit to a page where you put in secure credit card information. Here’s how to go about it:
1. Go to
2. Click on the logo on the right side of the page that says “Download on iTunes”
3. Once the store appears, don’t do anything; it should automatically go to a select number of episodes of World Report. You will see a small grey scroll-bar on the right side; scroll to the bottom where the latest episode should be listed.
