Email from Wayne Root to IPR:
Wayne Root continues to attract media attention.
Yes, he was a guest on 30+ shows in the past couple of weeks- as usual.
But Wayne’s appearances on FOX News actually get noticed and discussed by other mainstream media.
A year ago NBC News aired a one hour special on the Obama White House. They featured live coverage of Obama’s “media response team” sitting in the White House watching TV as the Justice Sotomayor controversy erupted live on cable TV news. What example did they use?
A video clip of Wayne Root on “Fox & Friends” calling Sotomayer’s comments racist.
The NBC special then showed Obama’s team responding to Wayne’s comments by going into crisis mode.
It’s happened again. Only days ago, The Jon Stewart Show featured a segment on “the terrible, greedy conservatives” who defend free market capitalism, and want to reduce the salaries and pensions of teachers and other government employees. Watch below…at 2:45 Jon Stewart shows a clip of Wayne Root on Fox News with Neal Cavuto:
Originally from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
