Cheers and Jeers: Play Ball! edition

President Bush just threw out the first pitch at the Nationals v Braves opening night game, and by my estimate, about 1/3 of the crowd booed him.

UPDATE: President Bush just joined announcers Joe Morgan and Jon Miller in the booth. Can you say awkward? Seriously. Bush – not good on the fly. Lots of uncomfortable silences. He did manage to loosen up a little on the flip side of the break, but I’m not sure having him hang out with the guys much longer is a smart call. There’s no script. The “oh no he didn’t” moment is just a matter of time.


started on-air as a sports reporter in Hagerstown, Md and was a one-woman-band - shooting, writing, editing, and working the teleprompter with my foot. I moved to NYC in 1999 and joined Pseudo.com - the world's first interactive TV network. Pseudo died Sept 2000, and the following years were filled with a series for Discovery International, a pilot for the History Channel, a pilot for the Travel Channel, and countless auditions. Client feedback research for a big investment bank paid the bills. In 2004, I took a gig with Kuma and made news reports for their reality-based video games. CNN called February 2005, and on Valentine's Day, I started covering the Internet as a beat on national TV. I left cable news in 2007, started this site, wrote a little for Americablog, and threw down the gauntlet. I said I'd leave TV to help fix health care if someone was taking a real stab at it. Someone was. I became the National Communications Director for Health Care for America Now. That was June 2008, and almost 2 years later - on March 25, 2010 - we won health care reform. I am currently at liberty.
