Pia not welcome in USA
Do you remember Pia Haraldsen when she interviewed James Oddo? In the middle of the interview Oddo became aware where this was going and made a complete fool of himself. Check out the video below.
She were supposed to cover the election but a few days ago she were denied visa to USA. When I first heard that TV2 in Norway were sending her to cover the election as their correspondant abroad I thought it was a joke. Apparently not, but her work kind of is a joke because it was the entertainment department of TV2 that were sending her over.
She is well known for her satire and James Oddo is only one of many victim of her play. USA apparently see this as a threat to the national security.
Pia graduated from Goldsmiths College i London and holds an international press card, this didn’t help much though.
You can follow her blog here. Its in Norwegian though but there is a funny video. She describes her meeting at the American embassy, talking to an angry lesbian lady. Her application where denied by Homeland Security.

This one is awsome as well, when she intervies UN’s director :
