The Sun Times Article
The mainstream media continues to spin last night's victory for Scott Walker in Wisconsin's recall election as a win for President Barack Obama--either because faulty exit polls showed him ahead of presidential challenger Mitt Romney, or because he didn't expend political capital campaigning for the recall effort. One of the worst examples was the Chicago Sun-Times, which declared Obama "beyond recall" in a front-page banner headline.
The article inside, by confirmed Obama fan Lynn Sweet, concluded that Obama's absence from Wisconsin proved he has more appeal to independent voters than Romney. Yet Romney, also, stayed away from the recall--so why should the same conclusion not apply to him? Sweet does not explain. She simply seizes--like many of her mainstream media colleagues--on the kinds of faulty exit polls that vastly inflated Barrett's chances. Organized labor lost, she admits--but not Obama, who is simply a better candidate than Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett.
