Gotta hand it to the TV newsies at KTVB–they get the interviews the other mainstreamers only wish for.
Mark Johnson did a teaser on the Sunday Channel 7 newscast and revealed Craig waited two months to tell his wife about getting busted in the Minneapolis airport crapper.
Craig said he planned to “exercise his constitutional rights” and appeal the decision of the Minneapolis judge who turned down the lame duck senator’s attempt to change his guilty plea after he was convicted. The entire interview is set to air Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Tough duty for Johnson, the former sports dude. While he was chatting up Craig he missed one of the best games ever on the Bronco Blue Turf.
Meanwhile, the Channel 6 KIVI web site is touting the “UNBIASED perspective of the Craig interview.” We detect the odor of sour grapes perhaps?
It should be noted that Channel 7 also got an interview with Micron’s Steve Appleton during the round of layoffs…the station also scooped the world covering Appleton and crew racing through the Baja desert.
Don’t forget the Brent Coles series of interviews on Channel 7 as well following the completion of his criminal sentence and probation.
It is no secret among media wonks that Appleton and Craig have no love for the Daily Paper. Some may see that as a red badge of courage and a source of pride as well.
