For John, BLUF: Some folks are calm, cool and media savvy and some aren't. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at The Washington Post is an item on someone eavesdropping on former CIA and NSA Director, retired Air Force General Michael Hayden. The big thing I take from this article is that General Hayden continues to be a smooth operator, actually joining the eavesdropper for an quick interview, where they agreed to disagree. That is to be expected, in that the eavesdropper was Mr Tom Matzzie, a former Washington director of the political group MoveOn.org.
Interesting, but not really picked up by the TV Show Democracy Now (Lowell local access channel 8, 0800 to 0900), General Hayden not only gave Mr Matzzie an interview, but also posed with him for a picture, which Ms Amy Goodwin flashed on the screen of her show Democracy Now.
Best line in the article was:
“Everybody’s a reporter,” said Hayden.For those who dismiss bloggers and other "new media" people, General Hayden sets the record strait.
