Jeffrey Lord: Why isn't Thomas going on TV?

Tuesday, April 01, 2008

Jeffrey Lord, former Reagan White House political director and fellow UCC'er, is a fan of UCCtruths... and asks the same question I've been asking... from American Spectator:
Critic James Hutchins, the bane of Thomas's existence over at UCC Truths, has already raised the obvious point about the impending ad. Instead of resorting to the safety of a static ad in the pages of the New York Times, why isn't Thomas investigating a chance to make his case for the UCC and defend his friend Wright on a Fox show like The O'Reilly Factor? After all, he's the one who had a campaign to get himself on TV talk shows. To which I would add, why not make the rounds of Hannity and Colmes or any conservative radio talk show that would book Thomas? One suspects the reason, of course, is that Thomas has the same thought William F. Buckley once attributed to a liberal who refused his entreaties to appear on Buckley's Firing Line television show: "Why does baloney reject the grinder?"
The reason seems obvious to me: a $120,000 newspaper ad affords Thomas the luxury of not having to respond to criticism or serious questions. For a national office that bellyached not long ago about not being invited on the Sunday morning talk shows, you would think this would be the ideal time to tell the story about what the UCC is all about... and it would be much cheaper than the New York Times ad.

If I were in the press and couldn't get a sit-down with Jeremiah Wright for an interview - the next step would be the leader of the denomination.

It is the next logical step in their quest for a "story".

I think you will find Rev. Thomas has already been asked (by several news outlets) and has refused.

I think if I accused someone of this, minor sin that it may be, I'd be inclined to post my name and/or where James or other interested parties might find what the writer implies can be found. :-(
