Newsom's Rebuke of Conservative Pundits May Excite His Base, Professor Tuman Tells LA Times

LOS ANGELES TIMES -- “If I were in his situation, I’d be pretty mad at the [unvaccinated], too, because they’re not helping anything,” said Joseph Tuman, professor of political and legal communication at San Francisco State. “They’re just making his job more difficult and they’re also making it more possible to spread this disease. He’s screwed no matter what he does.”

Tuman said Newsom’s decision to call out conservative pundits could also work to excite his own base.
