Letter: Show horse or work horse?
In the June 14 issue of the Monitor, Fox News host Chris Wallace responded to the findings of the New York Times regarding the number of TV appearances made by different political figures. Between 2010 and June 2013, U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte had appeared 11 times while U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen had never appeared.
Wallace stated, “What makes a good guest is someone who makes news. To make news you have to be at the center of the news.”
Really? New Hampshire voters might want to ask themselves, “What makes a good senator?” Is it a show horse or a work horse? Do we want someone who spends a lot of time prepping for interviews or someone who spends their time examining the issues and working with others to address them?
As Aesop wrote, “After all is said and done, more is said than done.”
