Andrew, maybe you can clear up something about the announcement strategy. It seemed pretty clear to me that Edwards planned to do the pre-announcement for the internet crowd early, but the AP and CNN are positioning it as a mistake? http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/12/27/edwards.running.ap/index.html
Is it possible they just incredulous that it could have been a plan to put TV interviews on a second tier? I'm confused and interested.
Disclosure/transparency statement 1: I working in MSM.
Disclosure/transparency statement 2: I am a third generation, un-repentant, genetically imprinted, pro-labor democrat.
Where is your disclosure statment? This one: WE WORK FOR THE JOHN EDWARDS CAMPAIGN.
It's fine that you do. You should just make it ABUNDANTLY CLEAR that this is the case. Who paid for your trip down there?
What concerns me is all of the posts on Rocketboom saying "great scoop!" That was no scoop. Scoops are the result of enterprising journalism. Edwards speaking to the internet before the AP , thats the news (unless you're the AP then it's a mistake hehe) not the content of Rocketboom's interview. That was a big wet kiss. He's an internet candidate and your the internet show of choice. It's a no-freakin-brainer. Hey if Rocketboom backs Edwards good on ya! Just don't lead your viewers down a garden path. Scoble laid out some disclosure statements... sho should you.
Oh and dude, i totally sympathize with the camera malfunction! (been there done that in Iraq of all places!) These cameras are so small now you can make Joanne carry a backup. (that's what we cameraguys call "puttin' the word porter back into reporter")

John Edwards knows a lot about poverty, after all, he’s helped throw a lot of people into it with:
- his co-sponsorship of H-1b visas,
- his support for illegal aliens,
- his vote for MFN-China
but what about stuff like iraq war and the patriot act?
well, he voted for them too
About the only think you can say for Edwards is, he spent so much time runnign for president that he didnt have time to do more damage as senator
Congrats on the work with John, that is great stuff. I love Rocketboom, and would like to embed some of the episodes in my blog. Is there an easy way to do that (have I missed something completely obvious)? Something like what Revver and Youtube provide as copy-and-paste code is good enough.
I actually use Rocketboom in the classroom, and this would help out a lot.
