Some thoughts on C-Span's statement to the press
Methinks that CSpan has been inundated with protests. Last week, when they told me that they were intending to put Irving on by himself if I refused to appear [where's the balance in that?], I said: "You will do great damage to C-Span." The producer, Amy Roach, said to me: "We don't have advertisers, so we are not subject to pressure." I quickly told her I was not talking about exherting pressure. I was talking about their credibility. Amy did not seemed worried and assured me that everyone with whom they spoke told them it was a great idea to air both me and Irving.
