The credentialed photographer who demanded Obama recite the Pledge of Allegiance at a campaign rally was on assignment for Bloomberg News.
Time headlines the write-up to its latest campaign survery, "Trouble Signs in Obama's Lead." What exactly is the "trouble"? Apparently that Obama is maintaining a five-point lead against McCain; the same lead from Time's poll in June. My hunch is that McCain would welcome that kind of "trouble."
The New York Times blog, The Caucus, notes in passing today that, "Team McCain is doing everything with pooled media these days, leaving most of the traveling media on the bus."
Remember the vaunted McCain media access? Now that it's been withdrawn will journalists lash out and will McCain's coverage suffer? Remember that for years journalists have suggested McCain often got the benefit of the doubt from the press because of all the access he gave reporters. Now what?
