Former Democratic FCC Chairman Reed Hundt got to spout off on John McCain yesterday when a McCain adviser canceled on a scheduled debate … then appeared on MSNBC at the same time as the event he had earlier agreed to join.
Douglas Holtz-Eakin was a no-show at the debate sponsored by the New America Foundation, so Hundt got to say whatever he wanted without rebuttal.
Holtz-Eakin apparently was the best surrogate the McCain campaign would offer – the foundation requested Carly Fiorina, Meg Whitman, John Chambers, any of the representatives who have worked in the tech world.
But Holtz-Eakin was it and he withdrew at nearly the last minute. The New America Foundation was gracious in stating it believed there really was a scheduling conflict, but something’s fishy. The McCain campaign has avoided much tech talk – beyond McCain’s apparent invention of the BlackBerry – and muzzled Fiorina after she said McCain or vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin would not be able to run a corporation.
Bloggers certainly haven’t fallen for the official excuse. Check out the sources below for further details.
