Well sometimes it just doesn’t do any good. I mean you set yourself up just to continually be mocked, you know so sometimes that doesn’t do any good, but what I have done in this campaign is in reaching out to the American voters through our rallies, through the one on ones, through the small meetings that we’ve had trying to get our message out, our plans for this country out there minus the filter of some of the filter of the mainstream media because, because that filter as, as we see every day when we turn on the news too often there is this, this opaqueness, there is this, this spin, this contortion of a person’s words and intentions and that does more harm than good, so it’s a greater challenge for me and for John McCain to try to get our message out there without that filter of I think some of the world’s media. It’s a greater challenge, but again, it does make us work harder and try to reach more people. That’s why we’re traveling around so hard and fast and aggressively across the US is to reach more people.
By turning his blog into a sounding board for presidential candidates â€” testing their appeal to the much sought-after evangelical voter â€” Brody has turned CBN into an unlikely go-to source for political junkies, routinely cited by the mainstream media. In a breezy style with a dash of irreverence, he embraces some liberals and takes aim at some conservatives. That surprises people, and keeps them coming back; his blog, the Brody File,– http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/blogs/brodyfile/ — draws about 25,000 page views a month, triple last fall’s numbers.

From Hotline’s “Friday Feature”:
David Brody is senior nat’l corr. for CBN News. He also writes the “Brody Files.” Before his CBN News gig, he worked for stations in Colorado Springs, Denver and DC. But today he’s our Friday Feature:
What was your first job?
I worked at Sedutto’Ice Cream Parlor when I was 14. My wrist hurt after a week and I knew I was more a white collar type guy.
What’s your most embarrassing on-the-job moment? (Or as embarrassing as you’d like to reveal?)
I was a radio DJ in Colorado Springs. I was working the Saturday afternoon shift and I put on American Pie by Don McLean and ran to my car to get something. You know, 8 minute song. Well, the radio station door locked behind me. I was locked up for an hour until the General Manager came from home to let me in.
What is your biggest weakness (and not your job interview biggest weakness)?
I love food. If I’m happy I eat. If I’m sad, I eat. I simply like to eat.
And finally, we’re ending this feature with a question posed by the last interviewee. This is from PBS’ Jeffrey Brown: Who are your favorite and least favorite fictional reporters and why?
Ron Burgundy from the movie “Anchorman” would have to be my least favorite because he was so overtly sexist. There’s no place for that in our business. (though I’ve seen plenty) Clark Kent has to be my favorite. He has a strong moral compass and at the same time was able to save the world. Where does he find the time and get the energy for all of that?
