Dennis Zaki has done it again! National Public Radio played Dennis' recording of one of Don's incoherent rants at the Alaska GOP Convention last winter, on today's All Things Considered. It was an article about the dire future outlooks for both Don Young and Ted Stevens. A decent piece, but the most vibrant, realistic part of the whole report was the actuality they got from Dennis.
In the past ten days, Dennis has provided a lot of material to CNN, the video and some photographs for a hit YouTube at Taking Points Memo Veracifier, his own production of my episode at Ted Stevens' Anchorage Campaign HQ, for firedoglake last week, and now - great audio for NPR.
Dennis' stuff has been seen, heard and read by scores of millions of Americans on four different kinds of media - two old (CNN and NPR) and two new (talkingpointsmemo.com and firedoglake.com). I don't think any other reporter in the history of Alaska media has done this, unless it was the Good Friday earthquake, or the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
