The National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers co-hosted a screening of “Bully” at NEA headquarters. Eddie Scarry of Fishbowl DC wrote a little bit about the film and the event, but was far more interested in providing some local color for the story:
Important side note: The NEA headquarters bathroom facilities are probably the most environmentally friendly place on Earth. That is to say, highly inconvenient for everyone. To activate the sink faucet, you have to move your hands around like a magician to trip the “hands-free” sensor. And the paper towel dispensers offer exactly three inches of paper per use. On the plus side, a slew of unhealthy snacks like potato chips, Wise popcorn, soda and chocolate chip and raisin cookies were aplenty before the show.
Feeding the press is a time-honored tradition for favorable coverage, but NEA failed to go the extra mile for the best possible coverage: booze.
