At those news conferences not everyone asks question but they all record(take notes) on the question and the answer. Finding you had written it down save them the trouble but doesn't mean they didn't listen. Finding you (the court reporter) had transcribed it, makes it easier.

Thing is, they weren't even in the room.

In fact, there was no room, unless you count the chat room. Mr. McNabb was being limo'd from Manhattan down to Vet Stadium Philly, and was talking on a cell phone to someone in the Eagles office. They read the chat questions to him, and he answered, and they typed it into the chat room.


"Are these McNabb quotes?" one of the reporters even asked as I copied and pasted the chat room text into the website. The game was afoot.

They wouldn't get to actually talk to McNabb for another hour or two, and may have been able to make an early story deadline by using those quotes.

I really wish you had put in something funny, like how he wanted his uniform with his name in purple, or whatever, just to screw with their heads.

Nice.

I'm still in the process of reworking my bacebook news feed.As of now its NPR and WashPost. Nobody reports shit anymore. A new guy at fencing has a son in journalism school at Syracuse. The kid was at the Pipline protest when the woman was hit by the concussion grenade. He gave his Dad a full story about what went down that day. I'm hoping his story lands somewhere, maybe the SU magazine... I haven't seen shit except from the"fake" news sites which we are not supposed to trust. There is a role for journalists, but I don't know if there is an outlet.

Colorado Public Radio tracked down the "King" of fake news sites.

He feels some remorse, but he's making $30,00 a month to ease his conscience.

And basically as soon as I post that, the Washington Post comes out with a multi page article on the story.

Up until today, it felt as though the press was completely ignoring this ongoing story.

It may be that they've been forced to cover it now, after all this time.

We have a deadline now that the Gov't has spoken. It will be THE STORY for the next few days.

Bloom County has had the best commentary on this. Social media is driving the news cycle now I guess witness the pipline shutdown. The optics of shooting veterans in 2016 are worse than shooting veterans in 1932.
