2. Criticism Helps Gary Johnson Stay in the News
Bad news is better than no news at all. Even when we appear to be very critical of Johnson, we’re still talking about him. We publish articles about him. And this keeps him on other people’s minds. Trump has catapulted himself into the Republican nomination by staying constantly in the news, usually because he said something very stupid. People enjoy reading about mistakes by politicians. It does not hurt a candidate that much when he is criticized. What really hurts is complete silence. By keeping Johnson in the news, we are helping him achieve the name recognition he desperately needs.
