Pence vs. Media Battle Brewing

I’ve heard from media friends lately that the Pence administration is giving them the cold shoulder. It is curious that a former broadcaster that boasted to have a radio studio would avoid the media as he has. He is certainly capable.

During the campaign, the Rupert team often heard complaints from the media that Pence was avoiding the media, and if they did talk, it was platitudes and non-specifics. When Pence does do media now, it is fluff pieces to conservatives like S.E. Cupp. One has to wonder why Pence is more interested in raising his national profile versus explaining


I’m the web director for a nationally syndicated morning show. Before this, I worked in politics for many years as a producer at a news talk station, WXNT, and then as the Executive Director of the Libertarian Party of Indiana. I then worked in marketing for the Englehart Group and the Advocates for Self-Government.

Despite my position in mass media, I love podcasting and all aspects of new media. I host the We Are Libertarians podcast. I'm a news junkie, a Christian, a libertarian and a voracious reader. I love food, comedy, tech, IndyCar, psychology, writing and collecting and organizing information. I also have two cats, Mittens and Cornelius.
