The Media and Obama: Reporters or Flunkies?
Coverage of Obama and McCain is so unbalanced that even the NY Times has noticed

If you had any doubt that the mainstream media is gunning for Barack Obama, you need only consider the rush to join him on his sojourn to the Middle East to realize that, yes, they are. I’m not talking about the usual retinue of reporters that tag along with presidential candidates, but the Big ThreeTM: ABC’s Charlie Gibson, CBS’s Katie Couric, and NBC’s Brian Williams are part of Obama’s entourage, each one getting one day’s worth of exclusive coverage. Keep a sharp lookout for Obama’s tour rider to show up on the Smoking Gun. It’s sure to call for plenty of arugula and smelling salts to revive those who faint in his presence.
