Timing is everything in News and Politics
For example, outspoken Conservative blogger Michelle Malkin is unusually silent over the David Petraeus resignation, delegating the task of dealing with it to one of her sub-columnists.
The news had talk show host Michael Savage on edge - it was compunded by another talk show host's "evolving" over a tender Conservative issue. According to Savage, the General's lack of discretion fell into the political laps of the Republican and Democratic parties as they look to 2016.
Savage pointed out an interesting note - according to breitbart.com ::: Petraeus was slated to testify before Congress next week on the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya. Bret Baier of Fox News had tweeted, "With Petraeus’ resignation effective immediately, he will not testify next week & lawmakers are said to be 'stunned' by the announcement." WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange seems to be thinking along Savage lines, critical of both parties.
In these days, when elections are being bought right out in the open, Americans are holding their collective breath until '16, it seems.
If you want to get the attention of the press, issue your release in time for Monday or Tuesday morning, checking first to be sure there are no "clashing events" scheduled for the time you may be holding a presser or conference call
