Liberal adviser re Sarah Palin: “I think here the media is on very dangerous ground”

The Article

Yesterday I posted an entry which included a quote from former Democratic strategist and long-time Clinton aid and adviser Dick Morris, and how he thinks the liberals are massacring Sarah Palin out of fear.  Today, another top strategist to both Clintons talks about the state of the Obama campaign, and the appeal of Sarah Palin.

Here’s part of what Mark Penn said:

I think here the media is on very dangerous ground. I think that when you see them going through every single expense report that Governor Palin ever filed, if they don’t do that for all four of the candidates, they’re on very dangerous ground. I think the media so far has been the biggest loser in this race. And they continue to have growing credibility problems.

And I think that that’s a real problem growing out of this election. The media now, all of the media — not just Fox News, that was perceived as highly partisan — but all of the media is now being viewed as partisan in one way or another. And that is an unfortunate development.

I guess what he means about the media all being “partisan one way or another” is that nearly all the media with the clear exception of Fox News Channel has once again been outed as being totally, irreducibly in the tank for Obama and any other liberal that is running for office (that’s the “one”); and against—sometimes rabidly, as in the Canadian media (especially the state-owned CBC)—conservatives running for office (that’s the “or another”).
