Beware Crappy Battleground State Reporting in the Wall Street Journal
Battleground Watch ^

Posted on 10/13/2012 5:15:42 AM PDT by Perdogg

Neil King in the Wall Street Journal assesses the Battlegrounds following Mitt Romney’s post-debate surge. But before we get to that let’s get the disclaimers about King out of the way first. He is the opposite of Jon Ralston below. King is a lefty hack who does consistently partisan reporting in what are supposed to be news stories. This one is no different. After President Obama threw up all over himself in the debate and is hemorrhaging support, King writes a piece on the state of the race and every section is a glass-half-empty scenario for Romney despite the overwhelming weight of evidence that Obama’s campaign is reeling in the polls, in the news cycle (Benghazi) and in fundraising (he spent 3 days fundraising in California rather than campaigning in mid-October — not good). As for positive mentions of Romney, no where is there a mention of the dramatic increases in voter registration in most every state relative to Obama’s overwhelming advantage in 2008. I redacted as much of the tripe as I could leaving in some of the factual nuggets but it really is an embarrassingly partisan effort. But that’s nothing new for Neil King, Democrat Advocate.
