Sheridan is more than just a little bit dismayed when an ISN camera crew and reporter Dan Randall come aboard to do a special report on Babylon 5. Since ISN’s last hatchet job on the station took place two years ago before Clark’s lust for power became public knowledge, Sheridan can only assume that any new report – especially since Clark’s military takeover of the media – will be much worse. His strategy is to give short, simple answers which are harder to reinterpret in a different context, but when the report is aired on ISN, even that approach proves inadequate to prevent ISN from grotesquely twisting the story around the suit the goals of President Clark, and perhaps the most disturbing soundbite comes in the form of Garibaldi speaking out against Sheridan’s recent actions.
