Broadcast News

I'm sitting in the media room working on my blog and they have CNBC on a big screen TV. We just watched a story on the media conference that was being filmed just out in the hall. Weird.

Lee Scott was described as being "fiery and unapologetic." Rob and I both looked at each other and said "fiery?" We had just sat through the same speech. Scott never screamed or yelled once. In fact, he had a sore throat yesterday, which also made the report.

There was also some banter between the reporter and the anchor about where could you go in the world without a Wal-Mart. How that was relevant, I don't know.

It is very enlightening to actually attend one of these events and see how the media reports it. Total bias.
