Since Reddit is kind of my wheelhouse, we were trying to brainstorm how to turn O’Malley’s Reddit into something digestible by the larger news public. The governor at least made a show of things by not performing that well in the space.
If I could do it again, though, I’d probably take a different tack on it. The election in 2016 is too far away for people to really care about what a minor PR stunt means in a presidential context. I’d probably have been better served to identify the questions that he pointedly DIDN’T answer, and thus make the story about the issues. Next time.
