Al-Jazeera frustrated at conventionAugust 31, 2004 12:49 by ManagingTeam
An Al-Jazeera camera crew sidled up to South Dakota Senate candidate John Thune today and tried to ask some questions after he finished a live shot on MSNBC. But Thune kept walking after his campaign manager, Dick Wadhams, realized the crew was from the Arab-language satellite TV network, which many U.S. conservatives say is biased against the United States.
“We don’t need to be talking to people who defend terrorists,” Wadhams told other campaign aides. The crew followed Thune around on the floor for a few minutes before giving up and leaving.
