Gary Johnson’s BCC Faux Pas

GOP Presidential hopeful Gary Johnson definitely gets high marks for persistence. As the former Governor of New Mexico, his press operation is also something to be gazed at like an alien invasion. He hosts conference calls with reporters with the frequency of teeth brushing. His emails list recipients and their email addresses, all loose for everyone to see.

In the journalism world this is frowned upon.

But we’re not complaining. His faux pas is most definitely our gain. We’re now filling a small filing cabinet with lists of journalists’ emails nationwide from Washington, D.C., Fort Lauderdale, and Sioux City to someone named the “mad biologist” and the more expected outlets like Cox News, The Weekly Standard, Talking Points Memo and more.

Thanks Gary!
