    Default The media is turning against Obama

    About a month ago I saw CNN saying Hillary is almost a lock in Ohio and Texas but the question is can she win by big margins. If not, Obama will still win enough delegates to be victorious. Last night Hillary won by small margins, Obama is way ahead in dellegates but the media is portraying it like Hillary had a BIG win.

    In reality, Obama did what he had to last night. He is the winner!

    Thats what they will do... all last week they said it was over if she didn't win the both... now it drags on... more media coverage.

    I've been wondering about CNN for the last week. It seems there was an inordinant amout of Clinton coverage and all the photos on the political section were of her. I know part of it is that it was over the weeknd and they sort of shut down and don't post a lot of new stuff on Saturday and Sunday, but it occurred to me that it wasn't very balanced.

    The media is just trying to make it interesting and keep us watching.

    What did Hillary win? She won 185 delegates and Obama won 173. That is ONLY 12 more for her and these are the states where she was a lock. I think Obama did great and the media is not reporting it.

    Media sucks!

    Without media, Big, you would start many fewer threads.

    So let me sit down a minute, Big. You're saying the glass is half full?

    Maybe Big took a vacation and saw a little sunshine.

    You know the Elwood Blues pad in the Blues Brothers, with the L passing outside his window? I could see Big living in some kind of noir place like that in NYC.
