This is precious. Steven Hayward writes at Power Tools that news media are turning against President Obama.
As I predicted last week, the media are starting to turn on him. Right now it is mostly showing up on the editorial pages in the ranks of unsigned endorsement editorials. Papers that endorsed Obama enthusiastically in 2008, like the Orlando Sentinel, are coming out for Romney.
On Memeorandum, Hayward’s rant was grouped with the following editorials:
The Salt Lake City Tribune endorses … Obama.
The Denver Post endorses … Obama.
The Tampa Bay Times endorses … Obama.
What’s that you said, Hayward?
Hayward is very excited that the New York Observer endorsed Romney. This shouldn’t be surprising, however. The Observer was purchased by trust-fund baby Jared Kushner in 2006, after which its better writers — the ones I liked, anyway — walked out. It used to be an intelligent read; now it’s mostly an upscale tabloid.
But isn’t it just like a wingnut to see a couple of endorsements (or one poll) as the beginning of a tsunami.
