... and the media counts him finished.

Or he finishes second, and the media says its not enough, he doesn't have enough money.

Or he finishes first, and the media says, well, he finished first last time and he didn't win.

I hope I don't offend any of y'all, but screw the media. Its time for us to hold their feet to the fire and undermine their monopoly on information.

Because no matter what way they find to say that John Edwards is finished, if people look around sometime later and he's not finished, the media will start to be the boy who cried wolf.

Fuck it, never the fuck mind.

If anyone is serious about saying a real world, dollars and cents, bricks and mortar "fuck you" to the media, they can get to the real diary over at JE08. You can join the revolution over there ... and by joining it, create it ... or sit chatting on the Daily Kos as the campaigns hoping to neutralize the blogosphere in order to leverage their money advantage pursue their blocking tactics and continue their year long diversionary tactic.

Update: A sampler of some of the talent over at JE08:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
