With only fourteen days left until America elects its next president mainstream media (sans some huge political disaster) will be hyping up anything that shows the race is tightening between John McCain and Barack Obama.
Why? Because a tighter race means more viewers of course. More viewers equals more money for networks, money which will be needed when the networks start to get squeezed post election season due to the tanking economy.
It will be interesting to see how McCain and Obama react to this “tightening” in the race for the White House. My guess is they fan the flames and use the MSM message to whip their volunteers and voters into gear. The outcome is anybody’s guess, but some are already cashing in their bets. I just hope it doesn’t come back to bite them in the ass…
