On The Media
I was recently interviewed by NPR's On The Media. They were interested in doing a story about milbloggers. I at first was skeptical, due to the leftwards slant that NPR has a reputation for, but I listened to other excerpts of their program and decided that they took a pretty objective look at how the media covers issues.
I was afraid that they would take my words out of context and distort them. They did not do this. They were extremely honest and objective. It was a welcome surprise to see something so objectively reported.
They talked to me about this blog, and why I write what I do. They asked me about my commanders opinion... You know what... just go listen. It is a 21mb MP3. Check it out.
They also talked to an ARMY TIMES reporter about regulations and standards governing milbloggers.
They then interviewed Jason Hartley, who writes JustAnotherSoldier.com. I hope you would go to... yup... here's the link again, find the April 29th show, and listen. The segment on milbloggers led off. When I can find a way to host it here, I will.
My only real heartburn, is that they put the wrong URL to my site on theirs. Hopefully they can change it soon.
