My friend misrepresented on CNN! His response

Postby Scepcop » 08 Aug 2009, 16:52

My friend Michael Goodspeed, a former paranormal radio show co-host and contributer to Jeff Rense's site, recently had one of his Joker videos shown in a TV report on CNN. But it was misrepresented and taken out of context, so he issued this response on YouTube about it. It's a great example of how mainstream media journalists distort and misrepresent things.

Here is the clip from CNN where his video was shown. (wait for the short commercial to pass in the beginning)

Michael Goodspeed's response to the misrepresentation.

Well whatever. At least his normal self won't be recognized in public since only his Joker self was shown, so no real damage was done. It was more a matter of pride.

So what did you think of Michael Goodspeed's response to the CNN report? Did you watch it? Did he make sense? Do you agree with him about the mainstream media's distortion?
