Beeb

Beeb

: Interesting moment on the Beeb last night (besides the host getting my URL wrong twice and my correcting him twice — say anything you want about me, mate, but make sure you spell the address right!): Iraq came up and I pointed to Iraqi blogs to remind listeners that this is about people, about people trying to be safe and to run their country and run their lives and we lose sight of that in an election. The host tried to turn it around as a slam on the Bush administration, saying they forgot this. No, I said, everyone has forgotten this: both sides in the election and certainly news media, too.
