Couldn’t happen to a nicer network, in my humble opinion.
A women’s group in KY [Clinton Supporters Count Too] has been made upset by the premature and persistent requests for Hillary to give up her fight for the Democratic nomination. They plan a media boycott in protest and ask that Democrats ignore NBC. Watch for this group to develop a campaign against Obama if he wins the nomination.
Surely I’m not going to win friends with reporters in the mainstream media, but it’s been frustrating to try to explain scientific and medical issues to them, only to see output which shows they couldn’t understand 8th grade level concepts. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but it’s scary to comtemplate the bulk of journalists who bring news to the public. I recommend seeking out your own information sources on the internet, and turning off your television, which constitutes the worst of the news reporting overall.
As for NBC, I began refusing interviews with this network early on. NBC offers bumper sticker news, and you’ll get little but ideology and slogans from them, as empty and vacuous as Obama’s promises of “change”.
Some advice for those who are interviews for television news…. go for the live interview only. If you have a choice between radio and television, in the same time slot, go for radio.
