ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate John Kasich criticized the media for writing what he says are "controversial" and "inflammatory" headlines. Speaking at a town hall in Media, Pennsylvania, Kasich told the crowd, "If I can say something that's very controversial, and I can put a headline in there, then guess what, I get paid for clicks. So my job is to write as controversial as I can... now does that serve us well over time?" Kasich went on to say, "Sometimes these things are so inflammatory that it kinda gets our blood pumping."
