We Forgot To Say He Was Dreamy!


Here's a new one -- Kerry lagged Bush in the polls before the debates because the media wasn't explaining how good he was. From silly L.A. Times media critic David Shaw:

What the post-debate shift in voters' perceptions of Kerry ultimately tells me, much as I hate to say it, is that the news media have done a pretty poor job of campaign coverage. If Kerry can so dramatically change how people perceive him in just 90 minutes on television -- without benefit of any real knockout punches by him or serious blunders by Bush, without a genuine, confrontational debate format -- it suggests to me that the media hadn't fulfilled their responsibility to tell voters what Kerry is really like, what he stands for, what he would do, who he is.
