Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having already girdled the globe with microphone in hand on behalf of the MSNBC cable network, intrepid field reporter Ashley Banfield set her sights on the U.S.A. in this limited weekly series. Touring America, Banfield stopped at various communities to ask the citizens how the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001 had impacted them -- and, for that matter, the rest of the nation. On the debut episode, she paid a visit to Seattle which, as a coastal city, was more vulnerable than most to enemy attack. Ashley Banfield Across America debuted August 12, 2002.
