Epistle to The Nation, in re: Eric Alterman arrest
Posted Mon, Jun 4, 2007 at 7:42 pm
I have sent the following "bletter" to The Nation in regards to their article "Alterman's Arrest" about the momentary arrest of the famous Nation columnist who is also a paid Media Matters hack. Perhaps it will be printed:
I'm sure I'm not the only one who's thinking this must have been a coordinated attack. What better way to draw attention away from the devastating points the Democratic contenders were making... other than to hijack the conversation by having a well-known and highly-respected journalist arrested! My beliefs are further strengthened by this appearing on the Drudge Report which, as everyone who's "in the know" knows, is controlled by the RNC Central Committee.
No, this was no random arrest. This was planned well beforehand, with the very strong possibility that Mr. Alterman was corralled into that room with the free drinks, perhaps through a series of room dividers and the like being placed surreptitiously in his way in order to force him to arrive where he did. Then, there's the matter of the "policeman". I put that in quote because I imagine he was something else entirely. Yes, quite something else.
Fly low, Brother Eric, avoid the radar, and keep on keepin' on!
