Who are OUR experts we'd like to offer for media interviews?
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 02:44 AM by snot
I mean, now is the time, so let's go ahead and beg the media to interview specified persons who are truly knowledgeable, credible experts, who hopefully also come across well in media formats. Who would those folks be?

I think we need a computer geek or two, to discuss black box problems, and
a statistician to discuss exit polls vs. reported outcomes, and
someone familiar with the results of the kinds of investigation Conyers has done, and
someone knowledgeable about the legal angles,
among others.

(We need people who don't come across as overly partisan.)

I think ruefully of a pre-election Diane Rehm show on electronic voting on which she had folks who seemed to be completely ignorant of potential problems. There are plenty of folks offered by others as experts; it looks a lot like we've GOT to offer our own.

Let's TELL the media who they shd talk to and WHY--i.e., provide credentials, etc.

But I'd like TiA and other stat folks to i.d. the best stat experts, and others to i.d. the best other kinds of experts, etc.

2. I want someone who will show up on Hannity and what's his name...
And reach across the table and smash Hannty's forehead into the microphone breaking his nose and knocking out about 6 teeth.

Blood everywhere.

That's who I want.

I don't want a freakin' expert that's going to get shouted out by the MSM.

I want someone that's going to kick some ass, and then stand on the lifeless body of one of these sumbags and say "listen assholes, were tired of this shit and we're here to kick your ass.

Or something like that.

Just don't put any more pansy asses up there.

5. Did you ever start responding to a post...
And then before posting it, you erase everything and say to yourself - "No, I better stay out of it"?

6. Which pansy asses have the MSM interviewed?
All I've heard is (mostly) silence, shills (we'll never be rid of them), or folks who are simply uninformed.

I personally don't think naked aggression is the best response; rather, naked TRUTH--but it must be comprehensive and well-presented.

I thought, e.g., that the Senators' speeches on Jan. 6 were all pretty good and v. much in the right vein. They specified a lot of the problems, in a way that could appeal to the avg. joe out there who hasn't really had a chance to hear much about all of this yet.
