Robert Greenwald Goes Toe-to-Toe with Stephen Colbert!

Going toe-to-toe with Colbert yesterday, I was grateful to be so well armed with the advice, thoughts, and support of over 2,000 people.  I was on the hot seat, for sure, but I knew the forces were with me thanks to you all. 

Then the bell rang and we were off.  I've always thought I talk quickly, but it's not even close to Colbert's brilliant rapid fire blend of satire and politics.  I tried to address the important work we've been doing with our videos, particularly the REAL McCain series.  Though the whole interview was over in what felt like only a few seconds, it was a thrill to be on the show. 

Now, back to the battles ahead!
