The Republican Media- No. 6

Mike Barnicle, substituting today for Chris Matthews on MSNBC's Hardball, was discussing politics with three individuals, one of them Anne Kornblut of The Washingon Post. She asked Kornblut- not a partisan, but an objective reporter- how the issue of the Iraq war is playing in Iowa and New Hampshire. She replied- I'm not making this up- "Republican crowds are a little different. They still want to be supporting the troops." (No one corrected her.)

As against Democratic troops, who, she apparently believes, do not support the troops. Imagine a reporter saying "Democratic crowds are a little different. They still want peace." Or, "Democratic crowds are a little different. They still want to support Main Street America." It won't happen.
