2. You know, that's a great idea ............. Maybe we should see
if he and AAR would be interested.

5. That would be the civilized thing to do...
I'd think with the wide spread effect his book has had discrediting
the RW's "Liberal Media" meme, he's earned it.

After reading his blog for many years I'm impressed with
his network of contacts.

Most of them are very articulate and interesting.

I haven't seen Pierce on there lately though and he
was a big draw for me.

8. Don't know. I gues first would be to contact Alterman - since he
has expressed interest. Then talk to AAR.

9. Maybe Sirius would be interested.
Could form their own line up.

14. OTOH... AAR is familiar with him after having him on...
He also writes for "The Nation".

So, maybe contacting AAR first would be the thing
to do.

22. Just to make sure he *is* interested and not to work around him.

16. Will he be back?
I'm bummed if he's not.

"What Liberal Media" was fantastic--infuriating, but great nonetheless.

23. Brutal but correct
I'm a big Alterman fan. I read Altercation everyday and have greatly enjoyed and learned quite a bit from all of his books.
