    OK, Bill Clinton isn't to blame for anything here. But this story gets frontpage coverage, and it's not covered as "47%ers Videographer Goes Public". It's covered as "Bill Clinton Made It Possible".

    Yes, he did. So did Romney. So did the caterer. So did Canon, which made the camera. So did gin and tonics I suppose.

    The lede is the bartender, who, though mentioned in the headline, is incidental to the coverage of Bill Clinton, who is purely incidental to the story. That is some mainstream media hero worship right there.
