Just for grins, I clicked on a FoxNews.com column by Fox’s “digital politics editor” Chris Stirewalt entitled “Alarm Grows Among Dems About Obama’s Chances” to see if he quoted a single Democrat expressing “alarm.” Nope, not a one. It’s all just hundreds of words of pure, mindless Obama-bashing and anticipatory glee about his imminent demise. Massive stock is placed in yesterday’s dubious CBS/Times poll. But basically Stirewalt just tosses up an assertion, rants for a while, and calls it a day. Amazing journalism.
