Media Matters on Meeting the Press

We found ourselves in a conversation at Netroots Nation with the press person at Media Matters.

FBLA: Does everyone in DC dress like they’re in the Junior League?

PP: No, we had someone from Politico come to our office in a t-shirt asking if David Brock wanted to be in a video singing Happy Birthday to Obama.

FBLA: Who was it?

PP: Patrick Gavin.

FBLA: Really?

PP: It was probably the strangest press request I’ve ever had.

Glad to see that you’re getting along so well without us, Patrick. Sniffle.
