ETECH Liveblogging: Lebkowsky on Trippi
O'Reilly's Emerging Technology conference is happening now and, as usual, live blogging of the event abounds. Here's Jon Lebkowsky's report on Joe Trippi's speech.
Al Gore endorsed Dean. Alarm bells went off in every newsroom and campaign in the country. That alarm said "Kill him now." Because if we don't kill him now, he's going to be the nominee. Press corps said, he's going to be the nominee, we have to hammer him. For three or four weeks, every candidate was hammering him, the press was hammering him. Dick Gephardt realized he had to win in Iowa... murder/suicide: wrecked Dean campaign with their attacks, but Gephardt still lost.
This wasn't a dotcom crash, it was dotcom America being shot down.
