Dept. of Bad Media Relations

The McCain campaign canceled the candidate’s scheduled appearance on “Larry King Live” because of campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds’ Monday meltdown in an interview with CNN’s Campbell Brown:

Granted, Brown was hostile and badgering in her treatment of Bounds, but no more so than Sean Hannity would be if some Democratic spokesman came on “Hannity & Colmes” and was as stupidly unresponsive as Bounds was.

The audience for “Larry King Live” was not responsible for either Brown’s hostility or for Bounds’ ineptitude, and it was a bad decision to pass up a primetime TV appearance because of what happened Monday night on another show. This is no time for the cut-off-your-nose-to-spite-your-face approach.
