Let's make this fun. $1000 BTC bounty to first person who can get @anandwrites to admit that:

- The word "secession" was never said in the talk
- He did not attend the talk
- And he did not interview me

If this works, may be a way to crowdfund retractions from NYT.
@AnandWrites For raw material:

1) Original:
2) Mostly accurate 3rd party transcript: genius.com/Balaji-sriniva…
3) Giridharadas article: archive.is/ota1V

To claim bounty, you need to be first person to force admission that the word "secession" was never said.
@AnandWrites If Anand won't admit it, but NYT will, that's another way to win.

Email them at nytnews@nytimes.com

$1000 in Bitcoin if you get them to print a correction acknowledging the word "secession" was never said.

Bonus $1000 if you get them to admit "guns" was never said either!
@AnandWrites Just to demonstrate that others were indeed mislead by the article, here's a contemporaneous writer who thought Anand Giridharadas of the New York Times had quoted me correctly.

Nope! Never said that word. All the news that's faked to print.
@AnandWrites More careful journalists knocked down Giridharadas' clearly fake story at the time. All they had to do was watch the video.

Still, you might expect "the paper of record" to not include completely fabricated material. Unfortunately that's not the case! wired.com/2013/12/balaji…
@AnandWrites Thanks to @dylanmatt for honesty!

Now nytnews@nytimes.com or @anandwrites should correct original story.

$1000 in BTC to first person that gets admission that I never said "secession". Another $1000 if they also admit no mention of "unregulated guns".
