I rush transcribed this, and I'm fixing now as I go along. I'm not one for live blogging: ( blogcall with Cindy )

(Update)-Joe Trippi now has the audio posted from the blog call.

Last night Bill O'Reilly said Cindy was appearing on his show tonight. I asked her today if she was going on with Bill to talk about her situation. At first she said that she thought she would, but after hearing what O'Reilly said about her she told the show she would go on only if he apologized for lying about her.

Cindy: My second reaction was I’m not going on it, I'm not going to dignify his show by my presence because I believe his show is an obscenity, it's an obscenity to the truth and it’s an obscenity to humanity...

Dave Johnson asked her what she would ask the President if she does meet with him. She said she'll ask the President what the noble cause is for the U.S. going to war. "Does he encourage his daughters to enlist?"

Peter Daou talked about how the media is still making Natalie Hollaway the lead story in the news and how hard it is to get her message across. She said that she feels the Holloway's pain, but also said that MSNBC cancelled two interviews with her yesterday and the war is really the issue ....

Can you help us out?
