Des Moines Station Ribs Fred, Rudy

Des Moines’ KCCI Channel 8 led its newscast tonight following the Patriots game with a report on the various candidates touring Iowa ahead of the caucus. The emphasis of the Giuliani segment was that he was one of the few candidates who is leaving the state and who won’t return, while Thompson was poked for comments he made that he’s “not particularly interested in running for president.” Those comments were taken out of context, as Thompson explains in a post at RedState, which includes a transcript of his full remarks. In any event, neither candidate getting much love from KCCI.
