Montana Politics The Media

The AP Offers Some Deep Insight


At the end of an article announcing Karl Rove’s visit to ‘strategize’ with Conrad Burns at a private golf tournament fundraiser, an unnamed AP writer offers this insight:

Both campaigns have gone negative with advertisements and campaign literature: Burns portraying Tester as liberal and weak on the war on terror, while Tester hammers Burns on ethics.

Do they even follow these races, or is the entrenched culture of non-coverage so powerful that overwhelms all logic? To have watched any part of this race and to believe that Tester and Burns are equally culpable for negative campaigning is willfull blindness. Sigh.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
