Video Dispatch from Florida 

Vermonter Sam Mayfield took her camera to Florida recently to document the '08 election for The UpTake, "an emergent citizen-fueled online video-news gathering organizationfocusing on providing alternative coverage of the 2008 political circus."

I just got the latest post from SamLand, her blog, in my inbox. It included this video, in which Sam is accosted by a McCain staffer while videotaping outside a campaign office. The UpTake has splashed the video all over the front page of its website, describing it as "what the McCain campaign may not want you to see."

Back in Vermont, Mayfield is a producer for the Center for Media and Democracy, which operates Burlington's cable Channel 17.
