[-empyre-] We the Blog

Michael, thank you for your introduction. I'm looking forward to the 
discussions on empyre!

The first presidential debate was energizing for many of us liberal and 
global thinking types. I was particularly interested in how the media 
effected what we saw and how we perceived the candidates last Thursday 

Here's what I wrote to our We the Blog mailing list when I posted the
first two of three post-debate pieces:

After watching the Presidential debate I noticed something interesting:         
every network televised the program just a little differently.                  
Some showed split screen reaction shots of the other candidate and some         
did not. Some showed full screen reaction shots while others did not.           
It made a difference in how you perceived each contender.                       
I give you two new We the Blog essays: "Split Screen Decisions" speaks          
to the media's effect on our perceptions and "Anatomy of a Decision"            
tells the quandary I found myself in when I approached the Washington           
Post about publishing my first piece.

Anatomy of a Decision:
