The MSM Trying to get in Obama's Head

Greg Sargent, over at TPM, catches the MSM red-handed not only reducing our most important decision to mere a mere horserace, but also trying to slip roid-rage drugs into it. (Sargent also apologizes for buying it at first when the piece ran yesterday and piling on).

Seems a reporter kept trying to bait Obama into going off on Bill Clinton ("Is he getting in your head? Why don't you answer the question?," etc.). When Joe Cool kept his cool and ABC didn't get the news it was trying to create, they created it anyway, National Enquirer-style. Check out their use of words like "the Senator shot back," "said angrily," and so on, and then check out the video of the actual encounter at TPM.

Right about now would be a good time for a reporter—oh say that one—to get fired. It's shameful. And, man, does Obama have class.
