Media Bias of the Day

On the radio this morning, it was reported “John McCain’s campaign just doesn’t seem to want to accept the polls that show Pennsylvania has turned solidly blue.”  They went on to report all the states where McCain is losing, and reporting on Cindy McCain’s visit to Yardley with a hint that it’s a total waste of time.  The message seemed to by “Why is the McCain campaign even trying?  Don’t they know that The Chosen One is Chosen?  He’s got this baby wrapped up.  They just need to get over it.”  I would accept the media reporting polling data.  But reporting Polling data in a way that makes it seem like the election is over already, and McCain should just accept it is well beyond the realm of acceptable journalistic integrity.

Well, if Obama has such a commanding lead here, why is Obama also devoting so much to Pennsylvania too?  Last weekend he was in the state for four stops in Philadelphia.  If the state is sown up, he’d have more effect elsewhere.  Sorry, but I’m just paying attention to polling data driven by media organizations that are in the tank for Obama.  I know what the internal polling is saying, and I know there’s a lot more enthusiasm for McCain in this state than there ever was for George W. Bush.  That’s not to say Pennsylvania won’t go blue, but I don’t think it’s going to be as close as the media is portraying it to be.

  1. It goes back to Biden’s comment on the undecideds. They know they need to suppress GOP turnout. I expect the level of challenges against military absentee ballots to dwarf the effort of 2000.

  2. “Well, if Obama has such a commanding lead here, why is Obama also devoting so much to Pennsylvania too?”

    That’s the million dollar question.

    Because Obama knows that even if the media says that he has won, it’s not over until the counting is done.

    It’ll be fun to watch them try to figure out how to suppress the white military absentee votes while passing the black military absentee votes, heh, heh.

    How can they tell?

    I call bullshit.
    Here in Ohio, it’s much the same thing. Palin’s got yet another rally here in Cincinnati Wednesday, and I am seeing FAR more McCain-Palin signs and stickers than Obama-Biden…but that may just be the areas I travel in.
    I think the Obama camp is working very hard to convince us that his presidency is imminent, and those who won’t vote for him might just as well stay home on Nov. 4.

    Fat f*cking chance of that.
