Christine O’Donnell Following Palin/Angle “Avoid The Media” Strategy
Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell has backed out of an appearance tomorrow on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with no explanation to the network.
“They just emailed us and said she needed to cancel,” said Mary Hager, “Face the Nation’s,” senior producer.
O’Donnell’s abrupt cancellation comes after scores of stories have emerged about extreme comments she has made in the past about issues ranging from condom usage to human brains being inserted into mice.
Frankly, I don’t care about the masturbation, or the mice brains. I do, however, care about whether or not she might have violated campaign finance laws. Apparently, she doesn’t want to face the hard questions on that topic.
Update: It’s now being reported that O’Donnell has canceled her Fox News Sunday appearance as well:
WASHINGTON – Christine O’Donnell, the tea party darling whose Republican primary win in Delaware’s Senate race shocked the GOP, has canceled her appearances on two national news shows.
O’Donnell had been set to appear on “Face the Nation” on CBS and “Fox News Sunday.”
Campaign spokeswoman Diane Banister told The Associated Press on Saturday that O’Donnell canceled so she could attend previously scheduled events, including a Republican picnic Sunday in Delaware’s Sussex County, where she received key support.
Banister says O’Donnell would love to appear on the shows in the future.
She should. Politicians who dodge the media ought to be held to account.
