OK, #TeamPete - it's time for some real talk.
Recently, I've been seeing a lot of grumblings about the media and their coverage - or lackthereof - about our guy @PeteButtigieg.
@PeteButtigieg I get the frustration, but as someone in the media field, I'm telling you, there's no conspiracy or cabal out to sabotage Pete's campaign. Not within the world of credible news and info media anyway. Leave those conspiracies to others.
@PeteButtigieg Instead, let's follow the #RulesOfTheRoad and turn our frustration or negative energy into even MORE grassroots efforts. If you've paid attention to the mobilize site, you'll notice organizers are setting up all kinds of things you can join to help/get involved.

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!

1/TYT, in their unending crusade 2 tear dwn Buttigieg, has shown again they r willing 2 misrepresent facts & mischaracterize events 2 meet their ends. This vid is latest example & while a lot 2 unpack, I’m going to focus on Cenk’s characterization of PD Chief demotion & the facts
2/Paraphrasing Cenk @ 4:30: “Black police chief (Boykins). Pete fired him. Why? There were tapes showing cops saying racist things. The police chief and other person revealed that information & it was inconvenient for Pete & SB so he was fired.” Lets break this down:
3/In court docs, officers - and Boykins - claim recordings began in 2010. Officers claim it was to monitor them for “loyalty.” These recordings allegedly continued for *two years* before Pete became Mayor.

So, let me tell you a story from 2013. Unfortunately this has nothing to do with #ChangeTheChannel , but ties more on how people tended to neglect ERod or even judge him after he joined CA.
Back when I was starting as ERod’ titlecard artist, the Deviantart group wanted to assemble an artist project of CA producers in tarot cards. I got in to make the @ShadowTodd card here: fav.me/d4hfj01 and then asked why Erod wasn’t on the list
After I asked twice pointing out that other producers had 2 cards, one of them told me bluntly that others thought negatively of ERod, but nobody gave me a good reason why. This made me upset because I got to know him after being hired and nothing fits to I was told

This is my thread on the matter. It will be only time I speak directly about it. TW for everything you’ve been hearing about and suicide as well. #ChangetheChannel
My family has 2 informal ‘saints’. My grandfather, who died when my mom and siblings were kids, and my cousin Michael, who took his own life in 2004. They are talked about, rememberd; their presence is always with us.
Suicide was conceptual for me until Michael died. He was 10 years my senior and played the drums…when I was little, back in the 80’s, I thought he was a rock star. His death had a profound effect on everyone.

I haven’t spoken much on the #ChangetheChannel movement as I don’t feel I have much of a right to do so. I almost exclusively benefitted from having a good relationship with management (what other reason would explain why my untalented ass was in Kickassia?)
I want to stress though that my support and belief has and always will be 100% with those coming forward. The way some producers were treated is shitty and unfair.
Being born and raised Catholic means I can’t see a situation without assuming I’m to blame for it, and I do feel guilt for being a prominent voice to management for picking up certain producers. And thus I feel responsible for bringing people into a shitty experience.
