Quick Thoughts:

If the media is run by liberals, why are the Republicans--time and time again, so much better at manipulating it?

I think there are two clear answers:

A) The media is not run by liberal--and the corporations that own most media outlets are certainly not liberal (see G.E./N.B.C., Murdoch, ect...).

B) Conservatives take the time to understand how liberals think, and thus are much better at pushing our buttons. Too many liberals get on their high horses and say they are too good to listen too (or read), let alone try to understand, conservative thought. Most things that are good for you cause some pain, and this mistake is biting us in the ass right now.

I like Obama's comments:

Speaking at a high school in Norfolk, Obama took a few moments to address
what he calls "the made-up controversy" of the day, Amie Parnes reports.Obama
said the McCain campaign moved to "seize an innocent remark and take it out of
context because they knew it's catnip for the news media.""See, it would be
funny, but the news media decided that would be the lead story yesterday. This
happens every election cycle. Every four years, this is what we do. This is what
they want to spend two of the last 55 days talking about...Enough!" he
said.Obama called the attacks "lies, outrage and swift boat politics.""These are
serious times and they call for a serious debate...spare me all the phony
outrage. Spare me all the phony talk about change."

Here is the video of Obama:

- Please see the new link on the right. Give what you can today--if Obama raises a bunch of cash today that will become, in of itself, a huge story.

NOTE: I will be drive-by blogging all day and updating this thread as needed.
