Talking is Tough
Anyone who talks to journalists to provide background or commentary says things that they wish they hadn’t. This is in contrast to when you’re making news, and can plan what you want to say, and it’s easier to stay “on message.” Kudos to Bruce for owning up to it.
I’m sure I said that, but I wish the reporter hadn’t used it. It’s just the sort of fear-mongering that I object to when others do it.
