The media is briefed on the next terror attack? (NY Post)
Someone just pointed out this bizarre item from the New York Post a few days ago. Has anyone else seen it?

TV DINNER

January 15, 2004 -- STEVEN Brill had a summit meeting of TV anchormen and their bosses over dinner at his Fifth Avenue apartment on Tuesday night with Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge to discuss how they'll cover the next terrorist attack. Brill, whose book "After" detailed the response to 9/11, spearheads the America Prepared Campaign to educate the public. Joining Brill, his wife Cynthia and two of their three kids for dinner were Fox News Channel boss Roger Ailes, ABC News prexie David Westin, CBS News chief Andrew Heyward, CNN anchor Aaron Brown, plus Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw.

If you're tinfoil hat inclined, this will certainly inspire an extra layer of tinfoil. If you're not, it's still bizarre. What could they be discussing? "Let's practice just how fawning we can all be." "Everyone, get on your knees and work on your brown nosing technique."

And what about the determinism implied. Not if there's another terror attack, but when.

Kinda scary, IMHO, and another sign of just how low the press is falling.

2. I heard Aaron Brown actually responds to viewers emails
this could certainly be brought up for discussion by DU members. Anybody care to post Aaron's email again? I'm not holding my breath he'll respond, or if he does I'm sure he'll brush it off as :tinfoilhat: . Big deal, he needs to be outed for the brown noser he is.
