As I sat and watched a 7 year old kid stumble as he tried to answer questions from two TV news personalities, live on TV, I fired off this note to CNNâ€™s American Morning:
â€œAnother brilliant piece of journalism by your O’Brien team. Wow, interviewing a 7 year old. What brilliant journalism! Great questions too!
Now we know how he felt after his swim! Absolutely riveting.Journalism at its best. Why bother reporting trivial issues like stolen presidential elections, local elections where 300 new touch screen voting machines fail, Dick Cheney’s energy policy meetings, the Project for a New American Century and their New Pearl Harbor called 9/11, or the billions of $ being made by Bush’s friends and family as a result of virtually all of his policies from No Child Left Behind to his border securiy initiative. Keep that silly information from the public.
Imagine if the public knew how you kept the real news from them? What do you think they would do?â€
I doubt that they will read it on the air. What do you think? Think about it!
