On ABC, Bill Blakemore provided free publicity to an online project run jointly by the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC and the satellite picture providers at Google Earth. The project is designed to dramatize the full extent of the ethnic cleansing of Darfur in Sudan by the janjaweed militias. Blakemore demonstrated how to click and zoom: red fires signify obliterated villages; blue lines signify the flight of villagers to refugee camps; bars show the camps' populations. Blakemore called it "a God's eye view of some of the ugliest crimes of man."
