Credit Where It's Due: AC 360 Talks ICE Agent Jaime Zapata
The other evening "AC360" featured a segment on murdered ICE Agent Jaime Zapata. This is significant because the guns used to murder Agent Zapata were connected to a gun-walking operation out of Texas, similar to Operation Fast and Furious which was out of Arizona. I wrote about this a few weeks ago when Sharyl Attkisson at CBS News broke the story.
CNN has reported Operation Fast and Furious before, but I'm still giving them kudos for doing this because I haven't found other evidence of Old Media talking about this. Also this wasn't just a blurb or a quick mention. The team interviewed Agent Zapata's parents and went in depth about his tragic death. It also exposed the red tape his parents and the Oversight committee are battling to receive any information about this. It's very important to humanize these stories, to put a face on it. CNN did with this report and that will make people pay attention.
Kudos to Cooper.
