"The media estimated that 18,000 turned out to see Obama at a "park.".. One problem: The arena (not a park) he spoke at has a capacity of 5,000 people, and was not filled....I don't even know what to say anymore. I know they'll say, as usual, that this is just an error and they can't get them all right, but they never make an error against Obama's interest. All errors are made in his If Obama loses -- and I believe he will -- the media will lose greatly. ....
If Obama loses -- and I believe he will -- the media will lose greatly. A shift against Obama, and the unavoidable "What Went Wrong" which must follow, would include all of those stories and inputs they refused to cover.
It will be an even greater indictment of them than of Obama. Obama will be repudiated, but they will be humiliated.
I think they must know this, so they are throwing it all away, reputation, credibility, all of it, because they know they'll suffer an even more devastating blow if Obama loses.
Plus, personally, they all drank the Kool Aid. On a personal level they want this more than they've ever wanted anything.
Thus, the Big Show. The constant distractions and excitements; the hype and the hucksterism.
Even PT Barnum would be aghast.
Below, an audio metaphor for the media's frenetic, frantic, frenzied (why use one word when you can use three that mean the same thing?) desperation plate-spinning to keep the public tuned in to The Obama Channel."
