My God. Props to @bloisolson for sharing.— Nick Solheim (@NickSSolheim) June 13, 2019
From @IlhanMN’s crisis manager Ben Goldfarb:
“Does anyone in the team have a relationship with Blois? Someone should probably reach out to talk off the record and shut it down with him AS WE DO WITH THE STRIB” [emphasis added]
3. @IlhanMN's campaign staff is SO unwilling to go on the record with reputable journalists (Can't speak more highly of @bloisolson) that they resort to finding a fixer who has a "relationship" with Blois to "shut down" the story.— Nick Solheim (@NickSSolheim) June 13, 2019
There's got to be something nefarious here.
I traditionally have considered the @StarTribune to be a reputable outlet (aside from the awful editorial board)— Nick Solheim (@NickSSolheim) June 13, 2019
If @IlhanMN's fixer was able to shut down stories from the Star Tribune, imagine how many stories do you think they shut down from @MinnPost, @citypages, and others?
