[UPDATE:] According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Kasich’s campaign alleges that despite the shows clear format and history of always taking viewer calls, they claim that they were told originally that the show promised them a different format and that NPR tried to change the format at the last minute.

The only problem with this story (beyond that it’s not true) is that the alleged “new” format was the usual format of the show.

Still left unexplained is what the Kasich campaign’s excuse why it didn’t take reporter questions throughout the day unlike the more accessible Portman campaign.

    Why the hell Kasich backed out on this chance baffles me. He blew it big time. Ted used the opportunity to blast Lehman Bros, Wall street, and Kasich’s huge bonus while working there. It just looks bad for Kasich to refuse to take calls and then have NPR tell its audience that. Ted stepped up and showed some guts. Hope Ted’s right about his internal polling showing him up too…Jim, Columbus
