2. NPR is not above using bizarre “whip” sound effects to illustrate the process of locking down Congressional votes. I’ll link to it if I can find the clip. No luck yet.
3. Filling out the Census form is really, really simple.
4. If you outnumber the crazies 50 to 1 – as in 50 people for reform and one guy against – some in the media will still feel compelled to imply that both sides were equally represented. Two reports from the exact same rally:
NBC 8: “People both for and against the health care plan are out in front of Tim Holden’s office…”
CBS 21: “There was just one person at the rally today [who was] against health care reform.”
5. See illustration above. Not learned but relearned.
That’s all for now. Happy Friday.
