Me on Spiegel, Malkin

| | Comments (0)
As some of you may know, there was a video posted on YouTube last week that purported to show the White House was doctoring videos. I thought that the poster was wrong, so I wrote a short comment pointing out the error.

A few minutes later I found some evidence he was wrong, so I followed up with another comment, and I thought that was that, until he deleted my comments, and all others criticizing his work.

So I made my own video, in just a few minutes, showing his error. It's gotten quite a number of hits (almost 20,000 since Tuesday), but apart from being an entertaining diversion, I didn't think much of it. I'd read some of the comments, try to explain the error to people who didn't get it from the video (many of whom appologized to me after calling me bad names), and so on.

Then today I check my mail and Michelle Malkin has subscribed to my videos on YouTube. And I go to her web page and see she's written up the whole thing. And she links to an article on Spiegel about it all, including a quote from me.

I also see HuffPo picked up the original video. Even though someone linked to my video in the comments, I doubt they'll post a retraction.

Well, it's more interesting than the latest news about Britney Spears, I suppose!
