Shortly before 7 a.m. this morning, state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal announced on WTIC-AM 1080 (Hartford) that he would seek re-election as AG and would not run for Governor in 2010. As of 8:30 am the news was all over the internet on Capitol Watch, CT News Junkie and  Connecticut Local Politics….but WTIC didn’t mention the story on either its 8 am or 8:30 am newscasts (we’re not sure about 7 and 7:30 am).

  1. Well, WTIC news staff can only report stories as news if they have read it in the Courant.

    Clearly the story wasn’t printed in today’s Courant (the old-fashioned paper version) and so WTIC wouldn’t know it as news.
