There was one other reporter with me in the press row at the Democratic Party fundraiser I attended to see Al Franken in action this past Saturday evening. I didn’t recognize the reporter but assumed he was from the Minneapolis Star Tribune. However, no story on the fundraiser has appeared in the Strib. I was impressed by the reporter’s ability to type on his laptop with the laptop cover open only about 30 degrees while I took notes the old-fashioned way.
It turns out that the reporter must have been David Carr of the New York Times. Carr’s excellent story on the fundraiser appears in tomorrow’s Times: “Comedian for Senator? Don’t laugh.” Carr seems to cover the event for entertainment value and is a little too bemused by the proceedings. I think my report stacks up pretty well against Carr’s, especially if you give me credit for timeliness.
