Do not fuck with the press. A candidate not talking to the press is a much bigger story than a candidate answering a few questions.
i've got a part-time job push polling for whatever lobbyist group or candidate is paying and this week, meg whitman is. it's the most ham-handed blatant troll job of an attack add, disguised in the form of a political survey i've ever had the good fortune to shill for.

1:04-1:06 it's the "oh shit, they aren't going to let me get away with this, I don't actually know the rules of the game very well" laugh.
today's political campaign: I want a camera to say a bunch of BS but not be held to answer any "unrehearsed" questions

Ugh. It's going to be Jerry Brown vs. Meg Whitman out here. At this point, a lot of us would take Gray Davis back.
Tee hee. The one thing that is still true about the press and always has been is that if you make a reporter feel insulted, he WILL tell the world about it.
What is she, stupid? Why would she do something like th...

I dont see whats so ridiculous. She invited them to see her meeting with some railroad reps and then gets hit with some bullshit question about some wiki page. You see shit like this on the news all the time "And today on the campaign trail, Mrs.Whitman met with blah blah and talked about blah blah in California"
If the goal of that was to remind everybody that she is in the race with photographs and smiles, but not allow questions, she could have just bought commercial time. You can't just promote yourself to the press in a conference and hope the press promote your promotion with promotion.
one star for each "shit, what do i do?" glances at her incompetent campaign manager

Pro-tip for Meg: You're not in the board room anymore, sister.
She's just putting the smack down on the liberal media like her voters will vote for her for doing.
+a million stars for the look on her face from :49 on. That detached, unaccountable, condescending-but-trying-to-look-polite look of "what the fuck are you doing?"
