Due to the tough treatment McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds faced on CNN yesterday, Sen. McCain will not be appearing on Larry King Live tonight. Yesterday, Bounds was interviewed by CNN correspondent Campbell Brown. Brown questioned Bounds about Gov. Sarah Palin’s foreign policy experience, pressuring him to asking him to name one decision Palin made as commander-in-chief of the Alaskan National Guard. When Bounds could not, Brown pressed on insisting that she was curious to learn more, not trying to beliddle the VP nominee.
CNN announced that McCain’s campaign decided to cancel the senator’s appearance on Larry King Live tonight as a direct result of this interview, arguing that the exchange was “over the line.” The network stands by their coverage, stating that they’re “committed to fair coverage of both sides of this historic election.”
What do you think, should the McCain camp have cancelled? Was it inappropriate? Were they afraid the senator would be further torn apart? Take a look at the interview & decide for yourself:
Oh, and in case you decide to skip the video and are wondering, Brown never did get an answer.
