COVER YOUR STORY

If we are interested, we will contact you for more info regarding your story, and how it would relate to public interest, or the theme of the O.S.T. program. To help with costs of travel and crew, William may require a stipend to produce your story, and because the show is produced independently, a rate of $300 per eight-hour day is suggested.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Why did you create On Second Thought ?
A: Because I felt that there were political issues that no one else was talking about, and these issues needed attention and a second look. Things like what really happened on September 11th 2001, the legitimacy of the Internal Revenue Service, electronic voting scams, and why certain politicians (such as Ron Paul) get under-reported by major media... and that's just scratching the surface.
Q: What's your professional background before working in television?
A: (site moderator response) William achieved honors at an early age, reaching the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America association, then served his country in the US Army during the Vietnam War (a decision he critically re-examined later in life, as discussed on his show), then worked as a realtor and real estate developer in Southern California.
Q: Tell us about the Michael Jackson trial you reported on.
A: I sat in as media for 60 out of 65 days of the trial, and was the only media person predicting MJ's innocence before the verdict. All the other media outlets were hoping for a "guilty" verdict, as that built more suspense for their viewers, and of course, more money for their advertisers. Follow the money trail.
