    and Sununus of this world never seem to learn is that if you seriously diss the working press -- and despite all the blog-chatter about it, the press does work very long hours for relatively little pay trying to produce some semblance of real information -- well then you are unlikely to be afforded flattering camera angles.

    When John Sununu was still gov of New Hampshah, before he went off to flak for Poppy Bush, he publicly dissed one of the local wire-service photogs at a presser. Funny thing, thereafter the wire services never ran a good picture of him. True story.

    •  but if you treat (6+ / 0-)

      the press, and especially the press traveling with a campaign or candidate and therefore working even longer hours under terrible conditions, with some degree of civility and respect, you are more likely to be given the benefit of the doubt.

      It's basic good management skills, something Mittens has never bothered to learn.
