I love reading when Joan Vennochi is fretful. Sunday she frets that Obama is getting far too easy a ride from the media:
Some big media names are getting goosebumps thinking about the next Camelot. They're not shy about yearning to turn the clock back to JFK and the 1960s, rather than to the Clintons and the 1990s…He has money, momentum, and plenty of media support.…if a candidate's uplifting language makes media eyes mist up, how many tough questions will ever pass those lips?
No worries Joan, these are professional journalists! Their overwhelming political liberalism is not reflected (they assure us) in their reporting.
And those with even medium-long memories will recall 16 years ago, a time when the object of similar widespread media affection and the bearer of a new Camelot was the now-scorned husband of Hillary Clinton.
He didn’t disappoint, did he?
