    If one side of an election is ahead in the polling and has a strong chance of winning the electoral college, if the media was neutral, that's what they would report.

    That's not what happened.   The media reported that it was "a tie", they talked about momentum, and that things were "razor thin".    The media reported a horse race that wasn't there because they want people to turn into their "news report" for the latest gossip.

    •  You're right. (0+ / 0-)

      But read what I said closely.  I didn't say they were neutral - I said they were trying hard to be neutral.  Not the same thing at all.  A lot of people - pundits included - think the only way to be neutral is to make both sides of anything look equally valid.  Even murder has its pros and cons.  ^_^
