Ducking the Media

Is this how Mr. Kerry plans to “report for duty”?

DES MOINES, Iowa ? Today marks the one-month point since Sen. John Kerry last answered questions from reporters traveling with him on the campaign trail.

The last time the Democratic presidential nominee took questions from them was Aug. 9 on the edge of the Grand Canyon, when the small traveling press pool accompanying him was allowed to ask eight questions.

And the last time Mr. Kerry held a full-fledged press conference where he faced questions from the entire corps of national reporters covering his campaign was Aug. 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich. He took two questions then.

Ah, but you don’t need to take questions from reporters when you have the New York Times and the Washington Post answering them for you.
