Mark Dyrholm's last stab at attention, before he goes back into obscurity...
I caught wind on Twitter about Mark ( The Media is unfair and out to get me) Dyrholm and his whining about the media's bias towards Danielle Smith. This is is just absurd. I do not care who Danielle Smith used to work with or what station her husband works for now, as it just does not matter in this case. Does the Dyrholm team seriously think that that the Alberta/National media is really out to get him and his 'conservative" ways. Mark is truly "jumping the shark" here and realizes that he cannot win the Wildrose Alliance Leadership, so is trying to create a last minute issue for his poorly run campaign. Either that, or it is a poor, poor attempt at mimicking Wayne Gretzky's famous "nobody wants us to win" speech in the 2002 Olympics.
To be honest, this blogger has also been accused of being biased against Mark. Many times in fact. The truth is, I do not believe for a minute that the "Media" is out to get him. In my opinion, I would not want to put a live camera in his face on the 6pm News. I have seen Bingo Callers that have more charisma and a better cadence to their voice. Remember last month when Charles Adler called him Mark "DRY-Holm"....he was dead on my friends. Adler also stated that he was accused of not giving him equal time, but declared that the man did not make a good enough phone in caller, let alone "radio guest"....yikes.
Before you blame the media for you lack of attention, perhaps he would consider getting some sleep before going on TV...or at the very least, borrow he could some of his wife's eye cream. At least then, he would look a little more presentable and perhaps get some more interviews.
Also, I wonder how many "interviews" Mark has been told to turn down, because the source was not "friendly enough" to his campaign.
Good Luck to you. After Saturday, you will be back to manipulation. Manipulating backs that is...and not the Alberta Voter. I guess running was not such a good idea?
