Is someone gonna hold the media's feet to the fire about "Mittmentum"?

I'm not just talking FAUX, here: Everybody was bleating like sheep about Romney's "momentum," more than two weeks after it was clear that it had peaked and stalled. It wasn't Sandy that "stopped" Romney: His campaign had already stopped! (I think Nate the Great Himself has suggested this.)

So who tells the Pundit Emperors that they have no clothes?

1. I was thinking about this too????

I did not see where he had momentum after the 2nd debate? To me, they knew he was in trouble and hyped the story lines?

3. Horseraces are Profitable

 

But putting the whole damn country in danger is NOT COOL. And that's exactly what the media was doing by pimping Romney!

5. There was no Mittmentum after the VP debate, really.

It lasted about a week or so and then that was it. The MSM wanted a horserace for ratings though.

7. I watched BBC for the last two weeks before Election Day

 

When reporting on America, they are "Just the facts, ma'am."
