If any group is being tipped this election year it may just be the traditional media. Dan Rather notwithstanding, our national newsgivers continue to use their pulpits to influence their readers, listeners, viewers. Commentators are one thing, they are expected to argue with bias, news reporters and reporting are not.
Most ridiculous headline offering news (and bias): CNN's poll results on Tuesday showing Bush leading Kerry 52-44. Headline: Bush apparently leads Kerry in pre-debate poll.
From INDC Journal an interview with CBS' Richard Schlesinger, who reported on the possibility of reviving the military draft. The problem with this story is its taking as truth, or at least a strong possibility, that the Bush administration plans to bring back the draft. This "story" was emailed to college students across the country. The fact is there is no truth in this. So why did CBS decide to make this part of their nightly news? INDC asks. You decide.
