So I did this interview yesterday for some bullshit Internet show that a friend of mine executive produces. I was told I'd have a forum to help clear up some of the controversy and address the AMC comments. We taped for about forty minutes and by the end I felt confident that I was able to articulate a well-rounded point of view.
The bigger issue I wanted to discuss was how Twitter is being co-opted by the main stream media and that eventually they're gonna kill it by manipulating information into titillating stories. What aired this morning on the Internet show was just that -- a titillating manipulation of facts. So they took the forum and spun it into soundbites that ultimately just continued to fuel the controversy. They avoided the bigger problem, because they are part of the bigger problem.
I'm such a fucking jackass.
