AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 3/11/2004 08:35:00 AM ----- BODY: Lileks on Kerry - Lileks vents about Kerry's intemperate comments and the predictable media reaction. The media will be hurt by this election. They are actively trying to hurt the Bush administration and its re-election chances. In doing so, they are throwing away any vestiges of that troublesome "objectivity" thing. I predict a ratings drop between now and the election for every station but Fox News. More people will come to the internet and alternative news sources for election coverage. The simple fact of the matter is that we just cannot trust the major news media any more. --------
