I'm on my way to MC at a liberty event in Mexico and won't be back until the 23rd of February and won't even consider interviews until after then. I've banked up my own shows so that I'm not distracted from my duties there. If you still wish to talk to me then, you may have better luck pinging me then.

The best way to guarantee our speaking is live on my radio show as my guest and you can ask whatever you want... and I might even answer. But then you will be asked questions as well... and you might answer.

For this to happen it must be scheduled for a live interview via Zoom before 9am Thursday the 10th of February.

You ask me a question, and then I'll ask you a question until we are done.

I just can't think of any other way I'm willing to participate. I only do LIVE news shows due to... Justifiable Trust Issues over decades of experience (and a lot of those issues has been with The Arizona Republic), which was largely responsible for the creation of FreedomsPhoenix and the Radio Show.

For the past decade our response to interview requests from the Arizona Republic has been "you would never print the real story,... and now you can't get it". This attitude has been the result of decades of... motivation for us to create our own media platforms.

Anne, I share these sentiments with you so that you understand our frame of mind. Our goals are truth, understanding and context with an open bias towards freedom. Even a glance at FreedomsPhoenix will demonstrate a wide spectrum of opinion and issues regardless of our open support for individual liberty and self responsibility. I appreciate your response and providing me the information I requested.

So you are fully informed, I share everything with my readers and audience including these conversations for our protection. Again, because we have been regularly conditioned to do so.

The only real 'news' we expect from the cross interview is what is printed and what was recorded, and That would be worth my time.

We're not shy... just careful.

Hi Ernest.

Thanks for getting back so quickly.

I really hope you will consider talking with me as much as you feel comfortable sharing about Ed. I'm trying to get more of a sense of who he is. I think you would have something to share with readers in that regard.

I'll enclose some links to previous stories I've done below. Some of these are subscription only; if you don't have a digital subscription right now, I can send you the PDF.

Take care, Ernest. I really hope you consider talking with me.

Here are some links to share:

Hello Anne,

No thank you.

Anything I wish to say has been said or I'll say/not say on my media outlets.

Maybe you have a few articles that may be able to sway me to the opinion that you are a different type of Arizona Republic reporter than all of those I have experienced in the past.

Hi Ernest.

Hope all is well with you.

This is Anne Ryman with the Arizona Republic newspaper.

I'm working on a story about Ed Vallejo and listened to the two broadcasts he did on your show on Jan. 6 and 7 in 2021. Would you have time to talk with me over the phone sometime this week? I'm looking for any insights you can give me into him.

If it helps to set up a time, I'm available pretty much anytime today (Monday) and on Tuesday after 8 a.m. except from 4-  5 p.m. I'm also available Wednesday through Friday after 8 a.m. My cell is 602-448-9127.

Thanks so much.
