Ever notice whenever the TV media is doing a story on Kerry,
even if he is ahead in the polls they always interject pessimism or negativism? Say Kerry is ahead of Bush in a certain state by 6 or 7 points, the announcer will say "HOWEVER, President Bush is due to visit this state in a week, and this lead could turn on a dime, Dan."

Or they "find" a "Democratic" voter who says "I'm voting for President Bush. I just don't trust Kerry."

Or they interject mindless rubbish like "Edwards' youthful looks may turn off voters looking for gravitas in (wonderful) Dick Cheney."

Negative negative negative.

These nattering nabobs of negativism.

1. True. And another thing that is bugging me is
they say "What are Kerry's values?" Well I hope Kerry tell them his values are the American people. These pundits and "Journalists" must think the American people are stupid. (Well, some of them are).

2. The media are masters
of anti-Dem propaganda disguised as journalism. When the Edwards family came to Pennsylvania to meet with the Kerrys it was at "Teresa Kerry's 3 million dollar estate." You never hear a dollar value put on Bush's glorified pigfarm or his daddy's lavish Maine compound.
In Mrs. Kerry's case, her wealth is given a sinister connotation - like it's not good for Dems to have money -- even, apparently, when it comes from a deceased Republican spouse.

3. CNN loves to editorialize on the polls.
If Kerry is ahead by 5 or 6 points, they always point out the margin of error to trim the lead. If bush is ahead by a single point they never mention that Kerry might actually be ahead.

Whores.
