One of those articles that makes you really angry

_Vanity Fair_ looks back at 2000 election coverage of Al Gore. “[A]s the 2000 election heated up, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other top news outlets kept going after him, with misquotes (“I invented the Internet”), distortions (that he lied about being the inspiration for Love Story), and strangely off-the-mark needling[.]”

Brian Fleming says The 2008 campaign will be no different. “Maddeningly idiotic reporters […] will lazily type out a narrative they think they are “discovering” in the campaign but are actually being manipulated into presenting. Their tiny minds will be so persuaded by the narrative they are typing that they will alter quotes and invent pleasing ‘facts’ to help support it. There’s no question that they did this in the 2000 campaign. In the Vanity Fair story, even the perpetrators have no defense for their bizarre behavior.”
