Re: Media Cheers

Karl Rove had three observations: it was old school attack politics, it invited a debate on specifics (“Okay, what programs would you cut?”) and it skated through problematic cultural issues like guns. Aside from that nary a critical word from the media.

I think we can safely say Obama has the media vote locked down. Whether independent, older voters were convinced is an open question.
