Soledad O'Brien

Confronting FEMA

"Forgive me, sir. I have to stop you here." CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O'Brien pointedly interrupts FEMA chief Michael Brown's positive assessment of the government's humanitarian response in New Orleans.

O'Brien was co-anchor of "American Morning" during Hurricane Katrina and conducted an in-depth interview with then-FEMA chief Michael Brown. Her reporting from New Orleans in the days that followed contributed to CNN's George Foster Peabody award for its Katrina coverage.
