MERRICK MEETS THE PRESS, OR SHALL I SAY “THE REAL STORY”
So, it’s been a busy few days. About an hour after taping the show with Senator Chris Dodd’s new Democratic challenger, Merrick Alpert–I got a call! Then, in a few short hours, I was off to D.C to The White House. (hence, why I am wearing the same outfit!)
Alpert answered a lot of questions concerning his run against Dodd and talked about why he thought Dodd was being “untruthful” but wouldn’t go as far as saying Dodd was “lying”. When I asked him to explain the difference, he said he didn’t know Dodd’s “intent”. Sounds like a true JAG lawyer because Alpert was a JAG attorney in The Air Force and served time in Bosnia. Pretty impressive. Here are some behind the scenes of the taping. Thanks to Andy for stepping up to the plate with The Real Story Photographer, Nick Caito, on vacation.
OH, AND TALK ABOUT AN ENDORSEMENT—TOM SWAN, Ned Lamont’s former campaign manager, said doing The Real Story (formerly known as Beyond The Headlines) is what TURNED Lamont into a household name. See, what Dodd is missing out on. :-)
