Today is media day for me in Quezon City, Philippines. Veteran Filipino activist Corazon Fabros took me this morning to a "media forum" which is a weekly gathering of journalists who discuss a particular topic. Fifty TV/radio/newspaper journalists came to hear me discuss Obama's "pivot" into the Asia-Pacific and its implications for their nation. It was great fun and they really understand things quite well and see grave dangers in the US military "coming back" into their nation.
Following that I did an interview for a local TV station and next I do a print media interview over lunch. Later in the day are two more TV interviews - one of which is a one-hour live show.
