Thus says Miya:
I am a little surprised that the Morales campaign has decided against being interviewed on TV for a pre-election profile. A little refresher, a profile piece is where we spend about 90 seconds of news time to run down why the two candidates are running for council. It's basic, there are no "hidden" agendas, and it's just a chance for candidates to tell viewers who they should vote for. Oh, and it's basically free TV -- which, last time I checked, is something politicians LOVE. However, after repeated attempts to set up an interview before Saturday's runoff election, campaign manager Justin Jordan finally told me that they don't have time. Morales is too busy. WHAT? Has anyone been to candidate school lately? When are local politicians ever too busy for local TV? I may not be the most experienced reporter around, but I've never had a council candidate who wants to be elected turn down free air time.
It's not about Roy. That's pretty much all there is to it. When you view it that way, it makes perfect sense.
