You never know who is going to contact you. One day it’s the University of Phoenix, the next it’s Fox News. Here is the humorous (for me) dialogue between myself and the Senior Director of Media Relations for Fox Business News that happened last night and this morning.
I hope this finds you well. I apologize in advance for reaching out to you via your work email. I came across your TBP blog and wanted to ask you a few questions about it. Are you free for a call today/tomorrow?
Thanks so much
I try to keep a low profile with my blog so it doesn’t interfere with my real job. I tend not to do interviews with the media.
Thanks for the quick response. I am actually not reaching out for a television appearance if it matters. I wanted to see if you’d be interested in receiving any news/videos from FOX Business. I’ve seen you post some on the blog and thought I could be of help. I also wanted to ask about the frequency of the blog and partnerships you have. I noticed you have reposted ZeroHedge in the past so just curious what other outlets you work with. Let me know if that changes anything.
MY BLUNT HONEST RESPONSE:
My blog is an anti-government, anti-mainstream media, anti-Wall Street site where I regularly scorn and ridicule Fox News and Rupert Murdoch, along with CNBC, MSNBC and the rest of the propaganda spewing media. I don’t think a partnership is in the cards. Zero Hedge publishes all of my main articles, along with a few other truth telling websites. My libertarian Ron Paul views do not fit with Fox.
Thanks for your interest and no offense from my above comments, but I’m not looking to make money from my blog. I’m looking to provide the truth to people who want it.
SHOCKINGLY, I HAVEN’T RECEIVED A FOLLOW-UP EMAIL.
