Play of the Day: Romney's No Democrat
Well, duh! The guy is trying to be the scariest man since Himmler.
Edwards labels Clinton an Insider
Oooooh! I never saw that coming! Gotta admit, though: the MSM love a good fight (and will do what they can to spur it on).
Giuliani talks about his prostate cancer
And the issue is not whether he's healthy enough to take on this demanding office. No. It's the hook for his own health insurance plan. Thanks, AP. That's a great headline. Very informative.
Clinton, Giuliani top scary costume poll
Once again, Hillary Rodham Clinton leads in a poll. This time, she's the top choice when people are asked which major 2008 presidential candidate would make the scariest Halloween costume.
What does this mean? Is AP trying out for the writing staff of Saturday Night Live?
This one I just love:
Clinton dominates campaign news
This one we have to hand to Reuters. Nothing like the news media reporting their own behavior as news. I guess that's one way to try to boost circulation.
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has dominated news coverage of the 2008 White House race, partly due to negative segments about her on conservative talk radio, according to a new study released on Monday.
At some point, someone new is going to be hired in journalism schools that is going to shake the orthodoxy up a bit. "Today a somebody said something about someone, according to something we heard somewhere, at some point." Now that's a way to hook a reader!
Giuliani blasts Clinton
Do you detect a theme here? I have yet to come across any other presidential candidate in my feed reader today. --Whoops! I'm back to yesterday!
Oh, wait. I did miss this:
Obama singer wins cheers despite protest
A Grammy-winning singer whose role in a Barack Obama campaign event riled gay activists served as master of ceremonies of a gospel concert promoting the Democratic presidential hopeful Sunday night.
I guess that is news. I'm not sure it's good news, though.
Oh, wait. I see the pattern now. Late night Sunday night is the time to post articles about Richardson, Dodd, McCain, Huckabee, Thompson, Putin -- oops.
Interesting how there are so many invisible candidates.
Ah, but at least the mainstream media are onto their own game.
When it comes to presidential politics, the news media loves front-runners. And seems to hate them, too.
Don't you feel reassured? Doesn't that just make you want to read more mainstream media manufacture?
Oh, and by the way, Ron Paul supporters, nada regarding your man in the past several days, though the "liberal" New York Times found you.
Smugness in mainstream obscurity, apparently. Morons indeed. Ha!
What's absent through all the coverage? Substance. What do the candidates actually say about healthcare? The deficit? National security? Social Security? Global warming? Energy policy? Education?
Not a whole lot. That crap is boring! Or so say the "news" editors of these mainstream outlets.
And of course we'll get a story about how we don't know much about the positions of any of the candidates.
That is what we call "news."
Good night, and good luck!
