16. If he was traveling with Bush, he likely was NOT the NYT reporter reporting

on Gore. It seems to me that in both 2000 and 2004, the NYT had relatively positive on the road Bush reporting - in 2004 it was Elizabeth Brumiller, not Bruni.) There coverage of Kerry was even more biased than their coverage of Gore. One article, even caused a major issue with the NYT's then public editor when Jodie Wilgorin referred to Kerry as a "social loner" - her (laughable) defense was that she had spoken to 20 some long (since college in most cases) friends! (Because all social loners have more than 20 friends with tight friendships lasting 40 or so years)

I suspect that this was because the NYT, trying to not be biased, assigned tougher reporters to the Democrats. My observation was that, in general, most reporters were relatively positive to the candidate they covered -- in almost all other campaigns. Thus the deviation from the norm was not Bruni or Brumiller, but the reporters assigned to Gore and Kerry.
