We all know when John kerry was coronated by the media - before any
voter had a chance to weigh in. It was a public afair, with someone
like Pitt present, broadcasting it on the internet like it was
No such publicity this time.
However looking back something makes sense: When Faux started attacking him
last year, Obama declared he'll never go on Faux anymore.
I thought at the time that it was an act of courage from Obama - and
applauded it. While still happy that Faux got sidelined, knowing Obama
better - he never had an act of courage in his life. I believe it was
the time when the deal with Faux's competitor, MSNBC was signed and
sealed: "turn your back on them and we'll be your campaign surrogates".
What followed is my proof. The famous campaign memo which "was
not given to the media" - the one Sharptonizing the Clintons before SC,
was executed point by point by MSNBC - like any good surrogate would.
It would be interesting to see where the deal gets shoved now
that the RNC concerns go towards the GE.
