Ok, now famous might be overselling a bit, but hey, I’m excited. Honestly, how many bloggers have had their sites referenced on CNN TV? And this wasn’t some lame show. It was Wolf Blitzer’s show, The Situation Room.
The only problem is they, the people that draft the show transcripts for The Situation Room, butchered my name. I’ve sent them an email asking them to correct the spelling. Hopefully, they’ll do it. If you look at the bottom of the transcript you will see that you can get video transcripts. I’m obviously gonna be placing an order.
I will admit I don’t watch The Situation Room. I actually don’t watch that much CNN. I’m a big fan of FOXNews. So how did I find out Erik’s Hmm was mentioned on The Situation Room? Well, I use the Technorati code that tracks who/what is linking to Erik’s Hmm and check it every few weeks. Well, I just happened to check it yesterday and saw some site I’d never heard of linking to me(iluvabbitatton.blogspot.com).
The site is a “fan site” for Abbi Tatton, a reporter at CNN and The Situation Room. Anyhow, the post was simply giving commentary on Abbi Tatton’s latest report which was on the Pat Robertson comments I blogged about earlier this week. Abbi answered a question of Wolf Blitzer’s on who in the blog world had actually come out in favor of what Pat Robertson said and she mentioned me and my blog. Pretty damn funny…
