A Tale of Two Videos: Brown vs. Coakley

This week two videos illuminated the character of the major party candidates in the special Senate election on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, in Massachusetts. Which video will have the greater impact on voters?

Some are calling this Republican Scott Brown's "Reagan moment."

Reporter John McCormack was pushed down and around by Obama appointee Michael Meehan as he accompanied Democrat Martha Coakley, who witnessed the incident on a public sidewalk in Washington, D.C. and later misrepresented it to the press. You can see Meehan coming up quickly behind McCormack and his arms thrusting forward just before McCormack fell. After helping McCormack back up, Meehan tried to block him from following Coakley to join other reporters asking the candidate innocuous campaign questions.
