Unless someone is dead or dying, 7:30am is unacceptable.
Having been in TV news for a long time, I understand people in the business tend to forget that A. TV news is not the most important thing in the world and B. Regular people don’t keep TV news people hours.
However, A. it isn’t and B. they don’t so calling at that ridiculous time to ask if someone wants to come on today at 10:30am to talk about health care reform and small business is a surefire way to get yourself a definitive no.
The kicker is they called Richard too. And emailed me on top of the call. All before 8am.
