Brian Dominick on CounterSpin

People get upset if I don't self-promote and they learn some other way that someone from The NewStandard did an interview or something elsewhere, so I'll announce that I did an interview with Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting's weekly radio show, CounterSpin, about media coverage of the West Virginia mining disaster turned debacle. It's a terrific media criticism show that I was really honored to be asked on. Kind of like NPR's On the Media, in case you're more familiar with it -- except with backbone, integrity and no detectable penchant for defending or excusing bad journalism.

Anyway, the show begins airing tomorrow on noncommercial stations around the country. Check here for your local listings. If you don't have a station near you (like we don't), you'll be able to hear the whole episode on the web at their archive, which you might just want to check out in the meantime.

Bravo Brian!

Even as I write this I am downloading the mp3 from the CounterSpin archive.

BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO Brian!

You acquitted yourself very well, very well indeed.

And you've got a very good "radio voice" as well, even via telephone. It doesn't hurt. And great poise and presence.

The "expansion" of The NewStandard into multi-media is in good hands.

Applause, applause, applause.

No studio APPLAUSE signs necessary!

Brian's participation begins at about the 15-minute mark, though it is, I'm sure worth listening to the rest of the show as well.

Make that starting at the 16:45 mark!

Add my kudos...

I'm new to the site solely based upon hearing you this morning on CounterSpin via KUNM/Albuquerque.
