A Daily Kos diarist in Pittsburgh says yes, that it aired in that market this morning.
Writes Matt Stoller, noting how Brave New Films planted the McCain Mansion seed with the media days before the story broke.
Take a look.
Matthew Yglesias has his doubts.
CNN's John King, working his interactive map on Sunday, claimed if the election were held today Obama would win 221 electoral votes and McCain 189. King stressed that so many key states remain toss-ups. (That's good a narrative for the media.)
King claimed one key toss-up state is Minnesota. Really? According to Pollster's trend estimates, Obama is up by seven points in Minnesota, and there's only one poll listed at Pollser that shows McCain ahead in the land of lakes. And that was from January. We get the feeling CNN is trying a bit too hard to push the, It's-a-tie! storyline.
P.S. Pollster puts the current (albeit, hypothetical) electoral count at Obama 260, McCain 176. (That's a bad narrative for the media.)
According to the NYT.
Hey, everybody's got a right to their opinion and all the candidates takes their hits in the press. But with Fournier, his hits this year have never targeted McCain. The latest AP column is more proof of why McCain aides wanted to hire Fournier to spin for them.
