Andy's TV News Video Center

AndyRamirez.com is pleased to provide both press clippings from 1993-2005 and tv news coverage from 2005-2011 here at the video center. I've posted interviews by some of tv's biggest names, including: FNC's Fox & Friends, Hannity & Colmes, Neil Cavuto, as well as CNN's Lou Dobbs, and local network affiliate coverage from ABC-7 (LA), and FOX-6 (San Diego). I have just added 4 clips from my appearance before Congress as an expert witness on July 5, 2006. Additionally, I've posted my War on Law Enforcement Press Conference, which I conducted outside the Department of Justice in Washington on April 24, 2007. My guests included a number of victims of questionable prosecutions or their representatives. However, as the Ramos/Compean case was so well covered by the media, I have chosen to focus on those whose stories are not as well known. There is no question that Gary Brugman, Robert Rhodes, and David Sipe did their jobs and the government's cases had zero merit whatsoever. Just added is my latest news story, the US Dept of Justice has gone after another BP Agent at the request of the Mexican Government (see the first story below). My LNN Stories are located at their own link, while my Andy Ramirez Reports are on their own, too. Stay Tuned for more news, reports, and stories.

Ramirez: Absolutely. The big reason we picked that date is that we feel that...the people of Mexico have long been exploited and enslaved by their own government....the President of the United States has talked about jobs Americans won't do. He is wrong. These are jobs that Americans used to do and are not being offered.
