NECN's Katie Davis reports from outside the Annual Boston Breakfast with Union Leaders but offers zero coverage about the what union leaders are saying to politicians or politicians saying to union leaders.
Instead, she offers horse race coverage in the campaign for Senator Kennedy vacant senate seat. Who's in, who's out, who's ahead, who's behind. I think we can summarize the news value of this report in a few sentences:
Candidate AG Martha Coakley and her team are in the race and feeling good.
Rep. Michael Capuano is turning the corner to make a final decision but hasn't lost ground because he's been preparing for decision day.
Rep. Stephen Lynch has been saddled up but is still in the barn.
Rep. Ed Markey hasn't left the stall.
Rep. Marty Meehan hasn't left the stall.
Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey is a scratch.
State Senator Scott Brown is considering a run.
Oh, one more thing about Katie Davis' report, there is a Health Care Rally on the Boston Common in support of reform which many of the politicians at the breakfast may speak at. Tune back into NECN to find out which ones attended and not what they said but whether their status with regard to the special election for Ted Kennedy's senate seat has changed.
