Political Coverage Is Best Left To The Professionals

Yes, everyone makes mistakes, including your humble correspondent. And yes, it's just an e-mail press release. But the following doesn't give one much confidence in the professionalism of The Mouse Network, whose credibility is already undermined each day by the existence of The Note:

Washington, DC/ Carson City, NV – ABC News, ABC News Now and C-SPAN will produce the AFSCME forum in Carson City, Nevada on February 22, 2007 at 3:00pm EST, moderated by George Stephanopoulos.

ABC News Now will offer it live via the pool switch feed in Washington, DC. C-SPAN will carry the forum live on cable nationwide.

Candidates confirmed to attend, as of publication, in order of appearance at the forum:

(as determined by lottery)

United States Senator Chris Dodd, D-CT
United States Senator Hillary Clinton, D-NY
Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack, D-IA
Former United States Senator John Edwards, D-NC
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, D-NM
United States Senator Joe Biden, D-DE
United States Congressman Bob Kucinich, D-OH
Former United States Senator Mike Gravel, D-AK

I probably won't get credentialed after this. Oh well.

Update: ABC also sent out a correction that "THE FORUM IS ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21st--- NOT FEBRUARY 22nd."
