MSNBC really hates HRC's guts

Casually watching MSNBC this afternoon, I heard Tucker Carlson admit to routinely giving Obama a pass, he says like everyone else in the press community. (I get sick every time a rightnutjob praises one of ours-- so I totally commiserate with our Republican neighbors when they cringe at liberal papers' unanimous endorsement of John McCain. But I digress.)
An hour later, Chris Matthews was being interviewed by his own network (weird what this happens), and, I didn't get the exact quote, but he says something to the effect that, the kind of spin you'll see in the media tonight will betray their feelings about Hillary Clinton. This is clearly the day's "you are either with us, or against us" moment for me.
I just wonder how the MSNBC narrative would have been if Obama were leading in Florida instead of Hillary. "Obama has grassroots support in Florida ... Florida Dems clamor to be heard and counted ... How can Hillary ignore a big state like Florida? ... Florida may have been devastating for Giuliani, but it may be just as costly to his fellow New Yorker ..." So far, the cable networks are following Obama's official script, declaring that it's all about the delegates, and who really cares about a million voters in a swing state.
