WCAX report on iBrattleboro
Yesterday a film crew from WCAX came down to our office and interviewed me for a story about the iBrattleboro libel lawsuit.
I guess they wanted to get Peter Freyne, but he was too busy writing his column, so he referred them to me.
I know they aired the story, because some friends from Fairfield called to say they saw me on the news. I don't have a TV, though, so I didn't catch it. And I'm a Mac user, so I'm having a hard time playing the video from their site.
One quibble — WCAX misspelled my name in the script on their website, despite the fact that they had me SAY my name at the beginning of the taping. Sheesh.
Also weird — they have three pictures of our office (but none of me) on their website. Why? It's not a story about Seven Days. That just seems weird. I mean, Ryan and Andrew and Bob and Diane are all cute and fun, but really.
Huh. If you're just glancing, it looks like our office might be the iBrattleboro office. Weird.

Exactly. Nobody knows the difference. It might was well be clip art.
How would just saying your name tell them how to spell it?

Very observant, Haik. I should have said, "they asked me to SPELL my name on camera." Which I did. Not that it did me any good.
I'm not sure that iBrattleboro has an office.

Man they need an editor. The apostrophe in "law's" in the 2nd to last 'graph? Ugh. In the last paragraph they capitalized "Wild, Wild West," though they weren't directly referencing the TV show or the film, and they didn't capitalize "World Wide Web," even though most style mavens agree you should. I know it's TV, but come on. WCAX is a joke. And the last sentence is a sentence fragment, but I can see how that might be a TV news style thing.
