Al Franken’s press policy
Sen. Al Franken clawed his way into office in the most high-profile of ways, eking out a victory over incumbent Norm Coleman in a recount covered closely by the national media. Since then, he has disappeared. This is by design: The senator claims to “focus” on home-state media outlets, often to the exclusion of organizations that reach a wider audience.
The upshot? Franken is now practicing the politics of division, at least vis-a-vis the media.
