Huckabee on the Media

AP:

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee criticized the news media Wednesday for being more interested in the exploits of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton than in the nation’s next leader.
Asked how he could break out of a pack of second-tier candidates, Huckabee complained about a lack of media attention.
“One of the frustrations is that there is more attention on Britney Spears getting out of a car without underwear than there is about who is going to be the next president,” he said. “That is something that we as candidates don’t control.”

Britney’s underpants are a convenient excuse, but if you search Google News for “Britney Spears,” there are only 4408 hits compared to the 11,798 results for front runner “Rudy Giuliani.”
