I think big time main stream media producers read polls and think more Democrats might be in power soon and are correcting their hyperbole appropriately. Its all about the money. Popular people sell.
Except Especially caugh with their pants down.
Do you know any other examples of MSM actually becoming critical of the Bush administration? Link to them in the comments. Lets collect them for posterity. In a year I bet they act like they never supported the war in Iraq!
I hope all you Dems out there running for office notice this trend and take advantage of it.
