BMcCaughey needs FACTS from someone other than MD anesthesiologists Her accusation based on 1 "research"article with serious scientific flaws is negligent.Valid studies prove unsupervised CRNAs are safe.The military uses lone CRNAs for seriously wounded.

Correction: Looking at poverty rates during periods when the minimum wage went up and stayed steady long enough for analysis shows a decrease in poverty rate of 7.5% in 1960-1966 and of 1.4% in1997-2005. Just the opposite conclusion.

If this is supposed to be a reality check, you should get your facts right. The conclusion that poverty rates increased with minimum wage increases bad analysis and misleading. Poverty rates go up during recessions, such as 2007-2009.

Apparently McCaughey hasn't read any of the several studies that show NO DIFFERENCE in patient outcome between anesthesia given by an anesthesiologist and anesthesia given by a nurse anesthetist alone. RESEARCH? Show me the study.

Observations and Uses

When I'm watching CSPAN or when I'm watching FOX, I wanna see what kind of people they have as guests and what kind of people they have on as experts and on the right side, kind of in a contextual box, I want to see from Sunlight Labs using their data, who the biggest campaign contributors are, how much money are you taking from who. I wanna see what positions they're taking, I wanna take metadata from across the web and compare it to this visual record and I think that's gonna also reveal really interesting things

With the television archive project you can take information from political speech and cross-reference it with other information from political speech and you don't have to be a network news producer to do it, you can do it in your own home and do it comprehensively.

Farai Chideya, New York University

Democracy is done a huge favor when people are allowed to make their own decisions and understand all the information. So when you have access to a broad and complete video archive of the things being said, both by Congress or in the news, by politicians on the news, you know the more information and the more context that's available, the better people are equipped to make those decisions for themselves and to understand what the issues are.

Dan Drinkard, Sunlight Foundation

Today we sort of take it for granted that we can just reference the Wayback Machine and point to a url of some website a few years ago, but being able to do that with political commentary and news is gonna be incredibly powerful and I hope that it become part of the fabric of the internet

The prototypical example, which I'm sure we'll see a lot of with these new tools, is a lot of people contradicting themselves—politicians in particular. It shouldn't just be John Stewart that has the ability to call people out on these contradictions it should be something that is open for everybody to participate with
