Pawlenty's New York media blitz

Posted by: under Gov. Tim Pawlenty, National campaigns Updated: January 11, 2011 - 5:44 PM

Updated with video from "The View." Update 2: Fox News interview.

With his book “Courage to Stand” hitting stores Tuesday, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty is on a media blitz in New York, appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” “The View,” CNN’s “Parker/Spitzer,” and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” among others.

The question he’s been asked at every stop so far is about the Arizona shooting and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs” map. Pawlenty has defended Palin, saying there’s no evidence her map had anything to do with what happened. But he also has said “it wouldn’t have been my style” to make a map with crosshairs.

Watch all of his appearances in New York below, and check out tomorrow’s Star Tribune for reporter Kevin Diaz’s story on assignment with the governor in New York
