Times most influential

(Feel free to delete this, 'cause it's kind of political, but I think it's relevant) I thought it was interesting when Piers Morgan said that Matt's Sarah Palin comments changed the outcome of the election. I think that's a bit extreme, but I have no doubt it was influential. The over the top reaction against it indicated that. Interesting how that has all died down now. I wonder how many of the people who were outraged at the time later on thought, maybe he's kind of right?

Re: Times most influential

I don't think it's died down for particular groups and some will never say he was right. But he raised Palin as an issue in a way that others weren't at the time.

(Interesting that Matt didn't do any promotion for the latest 'Journey to Planet Earth' episode. The one interview he did for the previous episode was completely overtaken by his political comments in the interview, rather than the environmental messages.)
