A friend sent me the Politico piece on Netroots Nation, complete with a picture of me.
Except, as you know, I wasn’t there this year. It was a picture from 2008, in Pittsburgh. But why should their pictures be any more accurate than the rest of their stories?
Virtually Speaking Sundays | 9pm eastern | 6pm pacific
For this VS Sunday special, Stuart Zechman welcomes Paul Newell: New York Democratic District Leader, grassroots community organizer and reformer. They’ll talk about
- Paul’s history in politics and experience running for Assembly;
- his involvement with Downtown Independent Democrats (DID) and his role as (one of two) District Leader;
- some of the dynamics regarding his Occupy-supportive resolution ultimately passed by DID;
- his ideas, proposals and strategies on campaign finance reform;
- differences in perspectives between grass-roots, partisan Democrats and movement liberals.
Here’s the video of the Netroots panel with Rich Trumka, Erica Payne, Paul Krugman and a couple of other people (warning: Long opening segment before the actual panel):
