1st reporter to interview Janay Rice: "she learned a lot about herself"

Today on CNN’s Reliable Sources hosted by Brian Stelter, ESPN reporter Jemele Hill explains how she landed the first Janay Rice interview, why she agreed to certain conditions, and what Janay feels towards the outcome of the situation.

Text Highlight: 

“I think obviously she would not like to relive the situation.  However, I think that that's pretty obvious.  There were certain positives or a silver lining, if you will, that came out of this.  Among the many was the fact that the level and awareness of domestic violence is now, you know, maybe more than we have seen in this country in quite some time.  The other side of her, from a personal level, too, is that she felt like she learned a lot about herself, about her own strength, the strength of her family, the strength of her relationship with her husband.  So, even though it was horrible and traumatic, and there's going to be some probably long-term emotional damage from this entire episode, I think that she has enough perspective to understand that there was something larger and bigger at play than just the microcosm of her situation."
