Response to It's become so painfully obvious.
“There’s one other base here: the media. Let’s talk a little media bias here. The media, I think, wants Kerry to win. And I think they’re going to portray Kerry and Edwards -- I’m talking about the establishment media, not Fox, but -- they’re going to portray Kerry and Edwards as being young and dynamic and optimistic and all, there’s going to be this glow about them that some, is going to be worth, collectively, the two of them, that’s going to be worth maybe 15 points.”
The WaPo and NYT are almost completely silent on this until they get something negative about the accusers. It should be noted that the negative story about Thurlow is on page 1 above the fold while the original story appeared on page 19. The problem the major media are going to have is that more and more people are becoming aware of just how in the tank they are.
