blago does new york
The reason for my trip to New York City is to cover the first days of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s book tour.
This morning’s itinerary included visits to the Today Show and the Early Show where Meredith Vieira and Harry Smith grilled the ex-governor about some of the things in his book “The Governor”.
I have been given amazing access on this trip. The only restrictions have been set by the tv shows. The Today Show only allowed me outside on the plaza while the Early Show was more agreeable and let me into the studio. Blago has been incredibly friendly.
