…gee, ya think maybe you overplayed your hand? It wouldn’t be fair for me to make a prediction about the NBC/ALG spat without returning to tell you how it’s progressing so far (of course, had it not gone the way I expected, I probably wouldn’t return to tell you how it’s progressing so far).
As you’ll recall, I predicted that NBC’s version of the email message was probably the legitimate one, based on the behavior of the parties. Since then, ALG has claimed to have a voice mail message of the offending NBC employee that bolsters their version of events.
Did ALG release the message headers of the email? No. Did they release the voice mail message? No. Do they plan to release either? No.
Here are two posts on the subject; the first from Politico.com and the second from Scott W. Graves. What do you think?
This event is a product of society’s attitude, “If it comports to my point of view, I accept it as gospel truth without vetting it.” For the attorneys out there, I channel Ronald Reagan; “Trust, but verify.”
