This is because he fears journalists in Alaska.

In a series of interviews with national conservative media outlets this month, Gov. Mike Dunleavy has launched an aggressive defense of his policies and against the recall campaign.

Republicans and the governor say he’s taking his message national because of dissatisfaction with coverage by Alaska media. But recall proponents say he’s stretching the truth, and some lawmakers believe an overly aggressive attitude toward opponents could create friction during the next legislative session.

Political consultants say there’s a side benefit to an Outside pitch: National coverage makes it easier for the governor to raise money for his recall defense.

The governor avoids traveling, public speaking and formal interviews, which makes his recent publicity swing unusual. He has repeatedly turned down interview requests with Alaska TV, radio and print media.

Though he avoids the local media like the plague Dunleavy has been readily available for interviews on Fox News and Breitbart:

Fox News aired an interview with host Neil Cavuto in which Dunleavy said “some folks on the left” don’t agree with his budget plan and want to reverse the results of the 2018 election that put him in office.

He labeled his opponents “special interests” and “folks that want a larger government.”

“It’s those special interests who are trying to redo the election here in Alaska and trying to impeach the president now nationally,” the governor told Breitbart News in an interview earlier this month.

Besides getting national attention and raising out of state money, this also allows Dunleavy to lie with impunity to an audience that does not know any better, unlike here in Alaska. 

And folks this is old news to Alaskans, because it is a page directly out of the Sarah Palin pagebook from back in 2009 to 2011. 

Palin also whined all over conservative news about how mistreated she was by the liberals and Alaska Democrats, which did not play well here at all because by then we knew she was a fraud and a phony.

Her attempts to be a local kingmaker invariably blew up in her face, and her opinon on everything was mocked mercilessly until finally she shut the fuck up. 

I envision a similar outcome for Dunleavy though he might still be able to avoid becoming a national laughingstock. 

Maybe.

    The city of Albuquerque has sent Donald Trump’s campaign a bill for $211,000 for a two-day September campaign visit in the area. The mayor said he wants the campaign to
    “pay our taxpayers back.”

    Since it’s only the people of Alaska that will vote on his recall, this accomplishes…what? Sympathy?

    And good on Alaska for recalling his ass.

    Now if they can only stop voting for Don Young.

      Do you suppose any Dunleavy voters in Alaska watch Fox news like 24/7? You really expect those people to read, do you?

        And they wouldn’t know what Breitbart was. They wouldn’t have a clue that a bitter and twisted old woman that works there used get paid a lot of money for trying every day to make Sarah Palin appear relevant. Yep, RAM is still stuck at Breitbart, doing nothing but growing old and spewing bile for a few shekels.

    “One of the most important items getting no public attention is the request by Hilcorp that its financial records be treated by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska as confidential.
    Hilcorp is a private company owned by Texas billionaire Jeff Hildebrand, a tycoon with a penchant for secrecy.”

    “The Dunleavy administration and the Legislature have failed so far in the matter of due diligence and the Alaska media has yet to explore and explain the implications of one of the biggest transactions in Alaska history.”
