Why the press was in the tank for Obama
Simple. Electing a biracial President would be historical. I think everyone in the press wanted to report the occasion. They wanted to see themselves on television reporting Obama had just been elected President, or pontificating the fact as a pundit or a newspaper reporter. It's something they would be able to show their grandchildren. It's a way of achieving immortality in our nation's archives. This coupled with the liberal leaning of journalists in general made it a slam dunk for Obama. The press is no longer a check on the political system. It controls it.
