Martina Navratilova on Connie Chung's CNN show in 2002 - video clip

I kind of stumbled upon this by accident using a new search engine I have on the new internet browser that I am using. There is a little section where you can do a video clip search, so I typed in 'tennis' and this clip was one of the options. Sounds like Martina said a few things that caused a bit of controversy. Connie says something about Martina was quoted as saying she swapped one regime for another? I don't remember reading anything about it. Does anyone know anything else about it?

Here's the clip - http://www.mediaresearch.org/rm/cybe...2/segment1.ram

Thank you for that terrific interview, Raquel- I hadn't seen that before. I thought Connie Chung was a little overly dramatic, and quite frankly, dead wrong in suggesting that Martina "go back to her own country"- THIS IS HER COUNTRY- HERS AND MINE! Martina has right throughout her career been the one player you could always count on to say exactly what is on her mind. I don't think she's as bad as many others have been at grabbing the bully pulpit and hogging the microphone and spewing sound bites just to grab attention. Everyone in that position has stuck their foot in their mount at one time or another, and Martina has always been refreshingly honest with what was on her mind, and yes, she was right about the centralization of power in this country after 9/11- it has intensified and organized since that interview, and too many people are willing to sit by and do and say nothing. I am not. I am proud to have Martina Navratilova as a fellow citizen of the United States of America!

Nice post Alfa! I couldnt believe the nerve of Connie Chung during that interview - whats her rational, that any immigrant citizen cant speak an ill word about their adopted country? Talk about freedom of speech!
