AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 9/06/2004 04:27:00 PM ----- BODY: Media Meltdown - Time and Newsweek polls show an 11-point lead for the president. Gallup shows Bush with a 7-point lead. What story does CNN (a partner with Gallup) have on its front page? "Bush military file lacks required records" Unbelievable. Where were the Kerry military records stories? Where were the investigations into Kerry's bogus Vietnam claims? There are plenty of leads to follow, but the media would rather give Kerry a pass than do any real journalism. This is sad, maddening and pathetic. The major media is dead. Long live blogs. Of course, it is an AP story, so it could be made up. --------
