The Upside of Sarah Palin's Invisibility in the Press
One good thing about the McCain campaign's refusal to grant press access to Sarah Palin? No one takes it seriously when staffers play the why-doesn't-the-press-report-the-good-news card. For example, a couple days ago, this appeared in the Wall Street Journal:
From her campaign's perspective, Gov. Palin isn't getting media attention for her contributions. For example, with foreign leaders last week, she had detailed conversations about the national-security and global implications of the energy crisis, one adviser said.
This got no pick-up whatsoever. Why? Probably because the campaign didn't allow reporters to observe those meetings for longer than 29 seconds.
