One thing I found really funny

When they bought off all the editors for this last election, some of them stayed bought.  The editors always take control of a news story headline. They get to write it.

So they do a poll, and in the poll they find that Obama beats all leading GOP contenders ... in fact, for a hypothetical matchup in 2012 , Obama wins - 52 -44

But what do they write, for the headline?

Poll: GOP candidates top Obama in hypothetical 2012 race

News Media Entertainment at its finest.

You are wrong. From your link:

In a hypothetical 2012 matchup, Huckabee leads Obama 52 - 44 percent, while Romney has a 50-45 point advantage, which is within the poll's sampling error.

RE: Midweek Diary Rescue

Thanks for the shout-out. When I was writing my piece on Express Scripts, I didn't realize I was going to make that greed/human suffering connection as directly as I did. Somewhere along the line during the research, though, it became very clear to me. I wish ESI's management would make the same connection. I also wish I had a 40-hour communications strategy job and a faster laptop. In this economy, I remain a dreamer...
