We are News!
Publicity is good for the movement. But what can they possibly show in a sound bite from what I said that will be deeply true. It is more likely they will look for some bit from the interview that could imply controversy, and then tweak it to highlight the drama. Tonight we watched a newscast on Crawford and they showed the two contingents - anti-war and pro-Bush - as if they were equally pitched camps. But with my own eyes I saw hundreds on one side, and a handful on the other. Yet on the TV they looked about the same.
Can you tell a lie with pictures?
So I have some anxiety about the story they will tell.
