TV Columnist Predicts Obama Landslide
"They are saying, 'We’re not saying it’s over ...' with a 'but' that speaks volumes." The New York Times' TV columnist Alessandra Stanley is talking about "cable news and network anchors" who "can’t quite stifle the blue-stained maps in their minds." Gasp! Is the Times running a media bias article? "It’s not really fair to blame the news media," says Stanley, "there is a flood of predictive data available, and reporters cannot realistically dam it up." For balance, a Fox anchor cautiously disagrees. Is this hubris, a media morning without screeners or anything else to talk about, or an accurate snapshot of a moment in time? Being sensitive to the need to fill column inches, we'll pick the last one. Like Castro said, history will absolve us.
