    This is an awesome example of where blogs can surpass newspapers.

      which is funded by the state government. What does this have to do with blogs?

      If you are elected FPE will you start doing that?

      I think it’s more a testament to the inability of this man to answer a question than whether or not the student was a substitute for hard investigative reporting.

      It is better than The Spot, though, so maybe you’re on to something.

        but the student isn’t a blogger.

        The primary reason you don’t see more of that kind of thing is that it’s really hard to get a second interview after you pull it off once. Most successful interviewers take David’s approach. (Which isn’t bad, since it gets you interviews with people who are scared of a confrontational reporter.)

          I was just saying that normally politicians don’t completely self-destruct on camera. I think the man’s reaction was more due to his own inability to deal with a question than whether or not what was being discussed was all that damning.

    The video didn’t live up to it.  But I give the kid credit for doing his homework.

    Ask the question, give them the opportunity to give the response they think you want to hear, and then call them out – with proof – that they’re blowing smoke up your butt.

    I really miss Tim Russert.  Maybe they should have this kid as the MTP host.

    from some interviews or discussions but can’t figure out quite how to do it and know they can’t do it like this guy!

    Pretty funny!
