Election Media Coverage is so Frustrating
The headlines read "Tide is Turning for Clinton". Unbelievable. The real news is that a black man running against the wife of a popular two-term president in a country founded on the backs of slaves is actually winning on all levels: delegates, popular vote, and number of states won. The real news is that Clinton had over a 20% lead in the weeks leading up to the Pennsylvania election and that Obama cut that lead to under 10%. That is a victory for Obama in my eyes. He's running against the establishment. We all know it won't be easy, but you'd think some thoughtful person in the press would express this view. I still have hope. Do you?
