I mean it worked for Ilyas `Atallah (the leader of the Hariri "Left" Movement in Lebanon). He was ignored for years by the Lebanese media; he once pleaded on the air with Marcel Ghanim to put him on his show. But miraculously: he is now on every TV channel. His parroting of the Hariri line really worked for him, and got him into the Lebanese parliament.
