Slowing Momentum

The Momentum conference in SF is over, so I can start catching up on stuff I wanted to blog but was too busy conferencing to write up.

First up: John Edwards interviewed by David Brancaccio on the PBS program “Now,” including clips from Edwards’ appearance at Momentum.

Interestingly, PBS chose to show clips where Edwards hopes to be a sort of megaphone for working people, providing a media face and voice to otherwise unheard political needs and desires.  However, when it comes to including clips of actual working people expressing the concerns they hope Edwards can amplify — the ultimate point of the exercise — not quite so much.

Kind of odd, considering what the “P” is supposed to stand for in PBS.
