Marco Rubio is (silently) boycotting CNN

Much to-do is made about GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and his boycotts of Fox News (and his criticisms of CNN).

But CNN has a specific candidate boycotting them: Florida senator Marco Rubio, reports CNNMoney’s Tom Kludt. Over a two-month span, the network “has sent daily interview requests to Marco Rubio” and “each time, the campaign has passed,” while still appearing on other networks.

When asked for comment, Rubio spokesperson Alex Conant said, “We don’t comment on our media strategy.”

The last time he appeared on CNN was August 7 on the morning show New Day, where he had a tense encounter with anchor Chris Cuomo about when life begins.
