We here at Dialogue pride ourselves at providing a top quality platform on which can begin our discussions. That means we pay a lot of attention to the little things, like the set, the lighting, the audio, and so forth. We want nothing to distract viewers from what people are saying. That's why I am asking for your feedback about last night's show with Senator Mike Crapo. When we have interviewed one of our Congressional Delegation from Washington D.C. in the past, we have used a satellite feed to get the video from there to here. But because of budget cuts, we don't have the funds to do much anymore. Satellite rental time is fairly expensive. So, last night we used a video conferencing system to get the video from Washington D.C. to Boise. That doesn't cost us as much because we already have the equipment and Internet connection in house. From my point of view, however, there was a difference in the quality of the picture of the Senator. What did you think? Did it detract from what the Senator said? Was having not as good a quality of a picture better than not having the show at all? I really do want your opinion. Send me an email.
One of our Facebook friends chastised me for using the term "ObamaCare" during the show. He was absolutely right. I should not have used a political term promoted by one party or the other. Journalists always struggle with how and when to use terms that have become politically charged and this time I failed. I promise to do better. Thanks for reminding me and keep the comments, criticisms and compliments coming.
We on the Dialogue staff remain busy. For our next two shows, I am tracking events happening at the Statehouse regarding education reform and Marcia is staying on top of things happening in Egypt. Send in your questions and tune in for our next Dialogue!
