Bachmann Has Cold Shoulder for Tough Questions | News | The Advocate

In a previous blog we reported that Bachmann has an increasing amount to answer for. Mother Jones broke a story this week about the "teen suicide epidemic" in Bachmann's district. Nine teenagers have died during the last two years, and some parents are directly assigning blame to Bachmann.
“I feel if I hadn't moved to this district my daughter wouldn't have died,” one mother told Mother Jones.

A photojournalist with TV station WQAD in Moline, Ill., said his station has evidently been cut off from Bachmann in retribution for an anchor just asking about whether so-called reparative therapy, aimed at turning gay people straight, is offered by her clinics. As Bachmann dodged the question (following her "MO"), behind the scenes, WQAD staff members say, her representatives were threatening to end the interview if the anchor asked follow-up questions. Six minutes into the interview, raw video posted by the station appears to show the feed being cut off. And when WQAD photojournalist Chuck McClurg tried to get an interview with Bachmann this weekend, he says he was told by a staffer that "due to the interview last week WQAD would not have an interview."

I think sooner or later this "fly-by-night" outfit will pass...Bachmann just doesn't represent the American people, their wishes and their needs and apparently doesn't feel the need to. I think that most people would like to separate politics, religion, and Bachmann in this case. It will be interesting if she makes it to the debates and she is forced to answer these questions. I don't believe that she or her staffers will be able to cut off the station from broadcasting then.

Worth watching just to see her squirm!
