Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

ABC News Decision Angers Kucinich, Braun
By DAVID BAUDER, AP Television Writer

NEW YORK - ABC News says it will stop having producers travel full time with the presidential campaigns of Carol Moseley Braun, Dennis Kucinich (news - web sites) and Al Sharpton.

The network says it's a routine coverage decision, but it has angered Braun and Kucinich — particularly after the Ohio congressman had a testy exchange with ABC News' Ted Koppel during Tuesday's debate in New Hampshire.

ABC said the change was designed to better deploy forces for the upcoming Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. The producers who had been traveling with the three candidates will continue to follow the campaigns by phone. [...]

"If they don't want to help me get my message out, then I'll have to find alternative ways to do it," she said. "I think it is a terrible commentary, however, on the state of the media, frankly, if their idea of a democracy is only relating to those candidates who have the most money." [...]
Likewise, a rather terrible commentary on what someone believes constitutes freedom of the press. Whether Ms. Moseley Braun likes it or not, the press isn't really there to help her get her message out.

And if she thinks SHE'S being snubbed, what about all the other lunatics running for office? I mean, come on! When's the last time you heard Ted Koppel interview Jackson Grimes?
