Calhoun ripping reporter now a campaign ad

4 Comments

Rule of thumb: Jim Calhoun video clips are entertaining.

Few people know this better than freelance reporter Ken Krayeske, who was at the receiving end of a Calhoun tongue lashing last February. (Click here to see it again.)

Not one to waste a good sound bite, Krayeske, a Green Party congressional candidate in Connecticut, decided to make it the center of a campaign commercial.

It’s a brilliant piece of grassroots marketing by Krayeske. The AP, Hartford Courant and ESPN all noted the ad. “Shut up”? Not that guy.
