Raw tape for The 90's election specials. Most of the tape is just press milling about at a hotel for a Bush / Quayle 1992 dinner, except for these notable moments:
01:17Copy video clip URL Interview with White House press secretary Marlin Fitzwater. The ambient noise is so loud, though, that he is almost inaudible. He says he enjoys the spectacle of the election no matter who you’re voting for, talks a little about the effect of the recession, and endorses Bush.
14:26Copy video clip URL Interview with Cheryl Devall, a Chicago reporter for NPR, who talks about her experience and strategies in reporting on the campaign.
22:00Copy video clip URL Ellen Warren of the Chicago Tribune shows videomaker Diane Abt her monocular. She also tells Abt about Ed Moskal, president of the Polish National Alliance, introducing George H.W. Bush as “America’s number one freedom farter” at the Polish National Alliance event, which Abt was too far away to hear at the time. Warren goes on to chat with Abt about politics and press.
30:23Copy video clip URL Fitzwater returns and compliments Warren. Warren goes on to briefly talk about covering Clarence Thomas.
