"It Won’t be a Landslide"

That was the title of an article on AOL’s main page yesterday. That is a perfect example of the power of the corporate media. The power to frame an arguement to make it sound like this thing is closer than it really is.

Obama has a 5+ point lead in the national polls. That translates right now to a blowout in the electoral college. The problem is, the corporate news media needs to sell commercials for the next three months. People will not be watching election coverage if the media were to tell the truth, that Obama is running away with it, and John McCain’s “Spinal Tap” campaign is spiraling out of control.

It is going to be a blow out. Period.
