7. The whole thing was distorted
If you go down in the thread, you see that NPR actually said they had invited Dean on for a later date. I don't think NPR meant that he had rejected being on this morning, although I can see how that could be misinterpreted.

I think the whole thread was much ado about nothing. I do recall something about Dean saying he would not appear on a program if they're going to play the scream during that program, and I think he's right about that. It's fair enough to draw the line somewhere.

I will be more interested to see the contortions in response to his pro-life statement, that's important. This NPR thing was just stupid and should have fallen into the category of "Dems don't let Dems bash Dems".
