All I can say is we’re sleep deprived, and have to get up soon to cover the Jena Six story.

I can’t go into explaining why right now, but in the TV world, Murphy’s Law is the rule fa sho.

As for the latest developments, you may want to watch the news tomorrow. I’ll be working, and I’m guessing I won’t be posting much.

I’m not sure about all the media outlets who will be covering, but I know The story will be on HDNews, not to be confused with HDNet. CNN has been here all week, and I saw a CBS satellite truck here too.

One of the Jena 6 family members told me that The Montel Williams Show asked the family for pics, and we hear Oprah Winfrey or at least producers with her show are here as well.

I’ll be checking for all media, independent, bloggers, and the mainstream.

It’s hella early (that’s Cali slang), and I have to get up in a few hours.

Here’s some last minute info:

5:00 A.M.
Protesters assemble at the bus staging area and board buses at the Alexandria Coliseum (5600 Coliseum Blvd)

6:00 A.M.
