BMG News has learned that Jim Ogonowski was scheduled to talk to students in a UMass-Lowell class yesterday morning. But he cancelled literally at the last minute — because Fox News called.
Boy, talk about your misplaced priorities! Ogo could have spent an hour engaging directly with a class full of students — you know, the future, and all that — many of whom are probably MA-05 voters. Instead, he chose to talk to a right-wing “news” outlet.
The correct response to the Fox News producer, Jim, was “gosh, I’d love to talk to you guys, but I have a prior commitment at that time that is more important, since it’s in the district. I’m available later in the day.” But, apparently, what Fox News heard was more along the lines of “really? You betcha! Name the time and I’ll be there!”
We report, you decide.
