Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma first district Congressman John Sullivan says he used a poor choice of words during a town hall meeting this week in Bixby. Sullivan was discussing the budget plan put together by House Republicans that has yet to receive action in the U.S. Senate. The congressman made it clear that the lack of action is frustrating him.

While AIDS cases have declined in Oklahoma, more people are now being diagnosed with the virus that causes the disease. And a story of hope and "faith" in this week's Oklahoma Life.

Anthony Shadid Obit

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma has lost a son and journalism has lost one of its best. We learned on Thursday that New York Times foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid died while on assignment in Syria. The apparent cause of death was an asthma attack, at the age of 43. A native of Oklahoma City, Shadid twice won the Pulitzer Prize. He's nominated for another one this year. Shadid worked in dangerous, complicated regions - telling stories of human struggle on the ground in the Middle East, bringing detail and understanding to ambiguity. In 2005, we did a program with Anthony Shadid, following the U.S. invasion of Iraq and the release of his second book. We talked about his coverage of war and the Iraqi people. Anthony Shadid leaves behind a wife, two children and a large family in Oklahoma. Shadid's former colleague at the Boston Globe, Mike Barnicle, said this about him: "Anthony Shadid was a reporter. He didn't tweet. He didn't blog. He didn't sit at home and opinionate about things that he saw. He was in the field. He talked to real people. He reported on real situations; in places consumed by violence....Anthony Shadid was a giant."

ONR Extra Coburn (5:39)

Featured in ONR Extras

Oklahoma U.S. Senator Tom Coburn made national news recently with a couple of comments at town hall meeting. Responding to a man in Langley who asked if President Obama "wants to destroy America," Coburn said the president's "intent is not to destroy, his intent is to create dependency because it worked so well for him." "As an african-american male," Coburn said, Obama received "tremendous advantage from a lot of these programs." Coburn has offered to apologize to any congressional colleagues offended by his remark that "it was a good thing he couldn't pack a gun on the senate floor." Coburn called the comment about shooting fellow lawmakers out of frustration a joke. Senator Coburn met with constituents at several town hall meetings this week. In this ONR Extra, here is an excerpt from the town hall in Claremore.
