Martin O'Malley calls media 'infotainment' at event, criticizes campaign coverage. [View all]

'On Friday, Martin O’Malley spent an hour with students in Houston Hall discussing his political experience on the local, state and federal levels and data-driven governance.

Recently, O’Malley campaigned for the Democratic presidential nomination, but dropped out of the race after a poor performance in the Iowa caucuses. He said he was disappointed, but that the young people he met during the campaign gave him faith that the country is headed in the right direction.

Although O’Malley did not discuss whether he would campaign for the presidency a second time, he criticized the Trump administration and said he was grateful that “no political term goes on forever.” He added that Trump was able to take advantage of political journalism’s focus on “infotainment” to keep himself in the spotlight during the primaries.

“They saw how entertained we were by him, and they gave us more,” he said.'>>>
