Philip, I wouldn’t go so far as to call that “gotcha” journalism. If the Giuliani campaign’s (oops — David Brody’s) point was to note his tolerance for diverse groups, they would tout those other proclamations just as loudly.

In that case, pointing out the other proclamations provides helpful context. To me, this additional information shows a politician going beyond tolerance and into active promotion.
