My little moment in the blazing Sun came when I received an email from a producer at Fox "News" requesting that I appear on Hannity & Colmes to discuss my involvement with the Iran thing. That was an easy decision. I declined. I don't think there are enough showers in the world that could wash THAT stink off me had I agreed. I wouldn't bother with any of the corporate media for that matter. It's just that Fox is particularly despicable. I really wasn't in the mood for a screeching ambush spectacle. I can guarantee that I would get really pissed off and end up putting my fist down some loud mouth's throat. Blowhards like Bill O'Reilly might get off telling guests to shut up but I'm no pacifist so there's no telling how much trouble I would get myself into pounding that goon's head off a table.
The BBC World Service was an easy decision also. I agreed. It was a pleasant experience. The interviewer was professional. He asked questions and then allowed me to answer--get this--without arguing with me! If only we could get a real news service in the US. Wouldn't it be great to have a truly informed public? Sigh... Now, it will be interesting to see if I am tracked down by the local excuses for TV or print news.
