(Des Moines, IA) Democrat presidential candidate Bill Bradley on Friday said the media is “never wrong” to question candidates’ backgrounds, but Bradley suggested candidates should be the ones to decide what personal information should be released to the public.
“The media is never wrong…It’s up to the candidate to draw the line,” Bradley said when asked by reporters for his views on the drug use question dogging Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush.
Bradley, however, expressed hope the tide would turn and personal matters would be kept private.
“It would be better if we focused on the issues of the campaign,” Bradley said. …From time to time, the press can be too invasive.”
In an autobiography, Bradley admitted to taking a “few puffs” of marijuana in the early 1970s.
