[I'm a reporter, Jon]. My job is to say half the time what one side is saying and half the time what the other side is saying.Yup - that about sums it up.
[An Aside: I'm watching the MTV Video Music Awards (because the closing ceremonies are boring) - there are 4 daughters - 2 for each candidate - pleading for increased voter turnout and youth involvement. The crowd is booing more audibly than it's cheering. I wonder if they know that the ones on stage are the Kerry daughters. Then again, this is Florida. The Bush girls are talking via satellite from NYC - it's harder to get the accurate audio that way. It was an interesting moment to watch.]
