The local lefty paper does an in depth interview on me. I guess by the title they were having a hard time finding flaws in me so they they had to throw the question out to the entire community.
Just kidding. I give them credit. They reported what I said accurately. The only flaws I saw came when they tried to make assumptions about what I meant or what I was thinking instead of asking me or doing research as many a good reporter does.
An example from the article where I was talking about the Tennessee black caucus.....
"....Then the whole thing came out, what they were doing with their money, they were funneling it into their own kids’ scholarship funds, they were getting it illegally ‘cause they weren’t a registered nonprofit, they were shaking down lobbyists, it just turned out to a big nasty mess". [In the kind of leap he often makes on his blog, Campfield is referring here to investigations of the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington, D.C., not the Tennessee Legislative Black Caucus that he tried to join.]
No, I was referring to the Tennessee Legislative black caucus. I guess the reporter who "Isn't from around here" was not present when all the dirt came out about them and was making the kind of leap he often makes in his paper.
Some other assumptions, that I hate Gay Straight Alliances. Honestly I don't care about them. I just don't think they should be funded by taxpayer dollars.
About the same for the governors failing pre K program.
I also was speaking of "Safe schools Czar" Kevin Jennings when I was speaking about my "Don't teach gay" bill.
Overall I thought the article was very fair. I knew walking in what I was in for. The only thing I was not too pleased with was I had agreed to do the interview as long as the didn't doctor up some photo's of me. I said early on "You aren't going to do to me like they did to O.J. are you? You aren't going to use some crazy or doctored up photo are you?"
I was assured that would not be the case. That the photos would be standard fair and portray me in a positive light. You can see what I got. Such is life. I guess that will teach me for trusting lefty's too much.
