East Coast Media Bias!: You...
East Coast Media Bias!: You'll see that PBS' Media Matters is doing a New York-centric story on bloggers, with Cloned Reynolds flown in for regional flavor. What they won't tell you is that this story was originally conceived to be about West Coast bl-ers, specifically the rabble in Los Angeles. They came down for a visit, and met more than a dozen of us, but we didn't make the cut (budget considerations, they said), so the geographical focus was shifted to Manhattan. Number Two tries harder, etc.

i dont feel so bad now matt. they emailed me, i called them back, left a message, then emailed them back giving them a list of people they should also be interviewing (you, layne, glenn, etc) and then when they called back they said that they'd already picked their people.
just as well.
i dont photograph well on pbs.
Damn Elite Eastern Media™... ;o)
I got an e-mail from a Media Matters producer saying they wanted to "pre-interview" me. I e-mailed and called twice but the producer never called back. Well, at least I'm important enough to make the list of people not worth interviewing. Or even pre-interviewing.
