New Deeds Radio Ad for Northern Virginia

Rosalind Helderman

Democrat Creigh Deeds has a new radio ad, versions of which will play in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads. Both are about jobs, education and transportation, slamming Bob McDonnell's plans on the topic and then transitioning to praise for Deeds's proposals. It opens by trying to make McDonnell regret accepting that Chris Wallace invitation to appear on Fox News last weekend.

The ad's got a woman and man talking to each other. "So this Bob McDonnell is not all he's cracked up to be..." the woman says to the man.

"I know, Fox News just said his jobs and transportation plan just doesn't add up," the man says.

And she responds: "Fox News?"

Take a listen to the Nova version here:

Notice this is another ad in Northern Virginia where you don't hear Creigh's voice. Why is he trying to hide his rural roots?

I assume a post is coming on the most recent polls? If Deeds were still gaining ground, I suspect you'd have a few posts dedicated to that story. Now that McDonnell's pulling ahead--again--I shouldn't have to go to the Virginian-Pilot's blog to find out.

Pick it up, WaPo. Everyone's been accusing you of bias--and you've been reporting the accusations--so why not try to be, um, unbiased? New polls have come out. McDonnell's up 14 and 9. Where's a post dedicated to the new polls (not a mention of one of them tucked away in your first post of the morning)?

Is a fact-check article coming out about this ad? Fox News didn't say that. Chris Wallace said that as he played devil's advocate. He wasn't actually saying it. He was putting forth Deeds's position, because Deeds wouldn't debate McDonnell.

Perhaps the WaPo editorial page should explain in its endorsement why Deeds refuses to debate McDonnell except for the four debates. Why didn't Deeds go on Fox News last Sunday when he was invited to debate McDonnell there? Why didn't the post have an editorial about it?

If McDonnell wouldn't debate, you'd use it against him in your endorsement. So how will you explain it away when you endorse Deeds?
