Dick Cheney's Hometown Paper Endorses Obama Today

For the past six weeks, we have chronicled the landslide in newspaper endorsements for Barack Obama (see tally on our site, with an update to come today), now about 250 to 110. Included in this have been well over 50 daily papers that have switched from backing Bush in 2004 to supporting Obama this year. Then there are the embarrassments such as the largest paper in Alaska, The Anchorage Daily News, also endorsing Obama.

Now comes another signal: This morning, Dick Cheney's hometown paper in Wyoming, the Casper Star-Tribune, switched to Obama.

CNN Hires Saddam-Al Qaeda ‘Connection’ Fabricator And Cheney Hagiographer

Over the past eight years, Hayes has done little more than spin for the Bush administration’s “war on terror.” Hayes was one of the foremost peddlers of the false claim that Saddam Hussein was in league with Al Qaeda, something that even Doug Feith, one of Hayes’ supposed sources, later disavowed.

Spencer Ackerman wrote that Hayes “has made a career out of pretending Saddam and Al Qaeda were in league to attack the United States”:

Washington Post Story Minimizes Government Contracting Scandal - McCain and Obama Ignore It

A recent Washington Post story about the diversion of billions in government small business contracts to Fortune 500 firms looks more like it was written by the White House press office than the newspaper that broke the story on Watergate. (http://www.asbl.com/showmedia.php?id=1179)

The story seems "un-Washington Post-like." Titled, "Agencies Counted Big Firms As Small," with a Bush Administration excuse for a subtitle - "SBA Says It Will Correct Data On Federal Contracts." The first sentence begins with "US government agencies make at least $5 billion in mistakes..."

Just $5 billion in mistakes; the SBA has it under control, no big deal.

Internet Now Major Source of Campaign News

Many more Americans are turning to the internet for campaign news this year as the web becomes a key source of election news. Television remains the dominant source, but the percent who say they get most of their campaign news from the internet has tripled since October 2004 (from 10% then to 33% now).

TVNL Comment: That is why they have to rig elections these days. The TV used to control the vote in that they shaped your opinion. Now you know better...so you stopped listening to them.

The AP Is Breaking More Than News

Some of the most eyebrow-raising stories this presidential-election cycle have come from a surprising source: the stodgy old AP. And this new boldness is threatening not only the AP's standing as a neutral arbiter of the news but also challenging its relationship with its owners, thousands of struggling U.S. newspapers that are coming to see the AP as a monster of their own creation: a competitor that could hasten their demise.

Chris Matthews Battles Nancy Pfotenhauer Over Elementary School Civics

Pfotenhauer, nevertheless, keeps up her crazy attempt to defend Palin, first explaining that Palin was "simplifying the explanation" for the absent child, when in reality she was badly complicating the VP's role, and getting it wrong to boot. Then she insisted that the same standard be applied to Joe Biden, who's never demonstrated a similar ignorance of the role. Eventually, all she can do is sort of sit there and let Chris Matthews shame Palin again and again, by saying things like: "The clothing allowance was right and the prep sessions were not ... By the way, I like the red leather jacket, but what's underneath it is a problem."

TVNL Comment: This is worth a watch.
