Do Tell Productions -- Creating high quality film and thater works of social and cultural significance

Cullen on NPR

In the wake of his wonderful Olympic success, Cullen’s getting a lot of press lately. You can find most of it by googling him, but I want to post this NPR story. They talk about what Michael Phelps eats for breakfast, Raj Bhavsar — the third ever Indian American to medal in the Olympics, the offensive photo taken by the Spanish basketball team, and Cullen.

What interests me is how media reporting is like a giant game of telephone. One outlet reports something, and then another picks it up slightly wrong, and then another picks that one up, slightly more wrong, and before you know it, Cullen founded the Make a Splash campaign. (Not true — it’s a program of the USA Swimming Foundation.)

So does that mean Michael doesn’t really eat grits for breakfast?
