A peek behind the screen

Tuesday, February 12, 2008 by Dave Winer.

Jim Posner sent me a link yesterday to an MP3 of a conference call between the press and two members of the Clinton campaign. It's really illuminating.  Permalink to this paragraph

There are controversies the press isn't reporting, esp betw the Clinton campaign and NBC. Will there be a debate on Feb 26 and will CNN host it or MSNBC? There's some doubt, but you can't see it when you watch the broadcasts.  Permalink to this paragraph

I'd love to subscribe to a feed of these conference calls, but we only happened to stumble upon this one. This morning on MSNBC they were talking about a conference call with Hillary Clinton, they said she sounded tired. I'd like to hear that for myself.  Permalink to this paragraph

There's a difference in 2008, the campaign is not just being covered by the professional media, the people are doing it too. Even if we don't have our people on the calls, I'd still like to hear them.  Permalink to this paragraph

So, if you have an idea how we could catch a stream of these, please post a comment. Thanks. Permalink to this paragraph

PS: I archived the MP3 in case the link above goes bad. Permalink to this paragraph
