'57 states'

My buddy John Fund catalogs the long list of Obama gaffes and notes the glaring disparities in media coverage.
"Over the years, reporters have tagged a long list of conservative public figures, from Barry Goldwater to Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush, as dim and uninformed. The reputation of some of these men has improved over time. But can anyone name a leading liberal figure who has developed a similar media reputation, even though the likes of Al Gore, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have committed substantial gaffes at times? No reporter I've talked to has come up with a solid example."
Bottom line, and I write about bias all the time, the press shouldn't be cheerleading for, or giving passes to, one presidential candidate over another.
