BOSTON, Massachusetts — With exactly two weeks before Election Day, Republican Scott Brown appears to be executing a strategy of ducking some media outlets rather than engaging media outlets. Perhaps Brown’s recent string of daily PR embarrassments is playing a role in his media reticence. Whatever the cause, major media outlets are making it clear today that Brown is avoiding them.
Sen. Scott Brown has so far declined multiple requests for an interview with WBUR.
[WBUR, 10/23/12, “Warren Vows Independence If Elected To U.S. Senate”]
Brown has been invited to a similar discussion at The Eagle, but has not responded.
[The Berkshire Eagle, 10/23/12, “Warren depicts sharp contrasts with Brown, GOP”]
Brown has been invited to meet with local media at The Berkshire Eagle offices, but has yet to reply.
[The North Adams Transcript, 10/23/12, “Elizabeth Warren stops by to talk ‘big vision’ with local media outlets”]
Republican Scott Brown’s strategy of ducking media outlets appears in line with his strategy of ducking high-profile debates and forums, as well as refusing to hold public, open town hall forums at which constituents might present Brown with questions critical of his record.
