” Less than 100 days before the election, a string of public opinion polls consistently show that the
public views both presidential contenders as strong, honest leaders.

    The editors find it deeply troubling that after four years a majority of the public still views Obama as a ” strong , honest leader(s)” .

    Therein lies the value to the democratic party of a compliant , lapdog media . That is a service that no amount of campaign advertising could ever hope to equal .

   All we libertarian/conservative types can say is ” thank God Al Gore invented the internet” .

The truth will out … But not without cost

   Such a snapshot is particularly troubling for Obama, given that his campaign has dumped more than $100 million into television
advertisements in battleground states — roughly three-quarters of it on attack ads against Romney.”
