JB: The corporate media seem bent on distorting the costs of this program, which is disappointing but not surprising. Has your recent piece gotten any press attention? And if so, how was it received?
SW: Our piece appeared in the Huffington Post, and a slightly modified version appeared on CNBC (online).

JB: Thanks for talking with me again, Steffie, and setting the record straight.
