Guess who’s the only major-media outlet not covering DonorGate?

That would be KSTP-TV, owned by major GOP donor Stanley S. Hubbard. The station’s top anchor, Cyndy Brucato, is a former Coleman spokeswoman.

I spoke to someone in the newsroom this morning who confirmed the TV blackout, but didn’t know why. I’m still seeking an explanation from a manager. does include an Associated Press story on DonorGate.

    KSTP, big surprise! They’re too busy running their republican weighted polls or their standard if it bleeds it leads stories to cover the story.

    You’ve got quite the rolodex there, Dave. Keep up the good work.
    What I have been trying to find out today is how Donorgate will figure into the Franken and especially Barkley campaign strategies. I really do not think that Barkley can part the Red Sea this time around. I also wonder if this story is breaking too late to damage Coleman.
