I missed ABC 7 Xtra and didn't see it until last night. I went to watch it online at the KVIA website because I was getting a barrage of text messages and emails asking me one question.
What is wrong with Stephanie Townsend-Allala?
First let me say, she's a friend. Great person.
We disagree on the stadium and proposition issues and we've had talks about it. I was hoping she'd make me understand the opposition a little bit better.
Frankly she's the opposition's best person to articulate the message. But for whatever reason on Sunday night, she didn't perform well at all. And trust me, I'm being nice when I say that.
Watch the video for yourself. In my opinion, she came across rude, aggressive, and confrontational.
Its not like she doesn't understand mass communications. She's a journalist. If memory serves, I think she actually started ABC 7 Xtra. She should know better than to lose her cool on TV. She should know better than to talk over someone and be argumentative.
People stop listening to you when that happens. You become the topic of discussion rather than your argument.
I think Townsend-Allala would like a Mulligan.
