IT'S EASIER TO SURVIVE THE FISHBOWL IF YOU WERE BORN IN IT:

Jeb Bush's Team Is Taping His Private Events 'As Much As Possible' (SHANE GOLDMACHER, 4/06/15, National Journal)

As Jeb Bush rubs shoulders and schmoozes with the business titans and Republican financiers at fundraisers all across America, somewhere in the room a tape recorder is likely rolling.

And it belongs to the Bush campaign's own team-in-waiting.

Bush's team has been quietly taping his private appearances in hopes of pushing back on false narratives dished by donors to reporters and to have a record to disprove any misinformation wafting from closed-door events.

"We want to have a full record of his comments," said Tim Miller, a senior adviser to Bush's Right to Rise PAC and the expected communications director for his expected presidential campaign. "Full information awareness."

It's not just a way to discipline the press but your own candidate.
