The show is over now, so I'm gonna presume to have permission from you, Spuff, to express my "personal judgement" of it and I'll be brief: Sucked. After a rather breathless hahaha reference about Gordon's kinda "crazy" life (yeah, we're all groovy people), the interview proceeded without ONE question regarding either beating women (repeatedly) or lying about military service. I understand that Matt's a citizen journalist like me and a lot of others and doesn't necessarily know what he's doing all the time, but we can at least strive for standards of a sort, can we not?
As an aside, the suggestion that the info about Gordon only became known after the invite to be interviewed was issued is interesting too. The first thing I did was Google to get information about him...why didn't the show do that? Busy? I dunno. But the info was out there since the end of September, before ON began occupying the plaza, so I'm not sure the fact that the show didn't know about it can be attributed to anything other than they didn't look. Jest sayn.
Must mention, too, that the taunt about "respecting the movement" is getting old in some quarters around here. Reasonable adults can disagree and should be able to do so without their very loyalty to the movement being repeatedly questioned.
And, now that it's been established that my blog "falls under the same category" as Matt's show, does that mean I can expect you'll be adding a link to it under the "Media" tab? You could do it when you add the link to the second stream...and now would be as good a time as any, since you're here and any of us who've ever had a web site up knows it's neither rocket science nor time consuming to do. Thanks.
