We've heard so much about delegates, delegates, and more delegates---declared and undeclared Super delegates for the Democratic party ad nauseam, but I wish the Village Elders of the teevee punditry class would also make a declaration if they have made a choice for the nomination and the general election. Day after day, we hear the same pundits pontificate on the ins and outs of the campaign season in such a way that you can close your eyes and know who they are supporting. I think it hurts their credibility if they are going to constantly slant their perspective to the American public. They aren't the reporters covering the stories and campaigns, but the opinionators that take the information and run with it. There's nothing wrong at all if they have a candidate they prefer, but it would be nice if they came right out and said it. Here's some quick observations:
O'Reilly=McCain (OK, these two were jokes because FNC is solidly for McCain across the board)
And have you seen the way Russert interviews McCain compared to any major Democratic politician? There are many more and I expect a big shift once the general election officially starts. In other words---some will switch and we'll see a solid McCain base permeate the airwaves. They sure love their doughnuts.
Begala and Carville were forced to say they are Hillary supporters every time they go on CNN which was the right move to make, so why shouldn't that same label apply to all that are trying to shape the narrative?
