I give good quote
I’m still at the RightOnline conference in Las Vegas where Politico decided to send a young reporter to ask attendees about Neil Munro from the Daily Caller interrupting President Barack Obama. Since I was asked…
Many bloggers recalled the Sam Donaldson, who frequently shouted questions and went toe-to-toe with President Ronald Reagan as ABC’s chief White House correspondent during the 1980s.
“Where’s the Sam Donaldson of this administration?” asked Clouthier. “[Munro’s tactic] is not my style, but if we had a Sam Donaldson this cycle, he would be up there screaming. Where’s the courage?”
Blogger James Wigderson, who blogs at Wigderson.com, added, “If Sam Donaldson can do it, anyone can do it!”
In fact, Daily Caller Editor-In-Chief Tucker Carlson said after the exchange in the Rose Garden, “I don’t remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan. And she shouldn’t have. A reporter’s job is to ask questions and get answers.”
I think I was quoted because right after I said what I said I handed him my business card to make sure he spelled my name correctly.
