Reason 5,456 Voters Lack Faith in the Media and Political Hacks

I wouldn’t read this as a criticism of any particular candidate as much as a criticism of the way that news stories develop today. Asked to explain how Barack Obama could defend claiming that more Clinton (Bill) foreign policy experts supported him than Hillary, one Obama staffer had a great answer:

Asked how Obama backs up the claim of greater support, campaign spokesman Bill Burton said the senator was referring to an article that ran in The New York Times Magazine last month, which quoted an anonymous foreign policy expert saying most of the community was backing Obama.

Yikes.

  • I initially relocated to South Florida 5 years ago (2007). I stayed down here for about 9 months at that time and advanced to ramble around the country. Within a year of leaving I decided to come back for good, it was the fishing that called me back. Currently there is nothing at all like it, if you have never ever fished South Florida then you are missing out– that simple.
