BENSON'S BULLY PULPIT

Earlier that day, campaign manager Katy Atkinson had told a News reporter, "There's a lot of anger and frustration among younger staff members with the media and, frankly, a lot of disgust."

But it was Benson, not the media, who had called his wife of twenty years from the airport to tell her that he would be taking another woman on their annual Hawaii vacation--and then petitioned to have the files of that divorce kept from the public. It was Benson, not the media, who called off the debates, then lamented that the press was ignoring the issues. It was Benson, not the media, who bought all the advertising that failed to deliver any coherent message--much less any votes.

And it was Benson who lost. All on his own.
