Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake gave a perfect example of handling the mainstream media.
A CNN reporter, who had previously reported on Lake, ambushed the candidate as she was entering a campaign event.
CNN’s Kyung Lah approached Lake in a campaign ad Lake posted on Twitter.
“You don’t have a mask on anymore. What’s going on?” Lake said.
“We’re outside,” Lah responded. “Do you have a minute to chat?”
Lake owned the reporter with a quick and witty response.
“I’ll do an interview as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist?” she said. “I don’t think so because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”
The Trump-endorsed candidate then walked into a room full of supporters.
