So long, Chief Brody.
Insisting on the Narrative….
So, Obama wins every single primary and caucus this weekend. By a massive margin, in most cases — including in Maine, where most expected a Clinton win.
A sweep. The momentum is clear.
So naturally, the mainstream media, desperate for the narrative they’ve decided upon, leads instead with the story of the personell switcheroo in the Clinton campaign.
Obama wins every contest, and yet they still insist on giving Clinton more coverage.
Remember — the mainstream media has a vested interest in keeping the old political wars going. It “sells papers” — puts eyes in front of screens — after all. Expect to see a lot more Clinton coverage, with the occasional mention of Obama’s growing number of wins.
Watched Torchwood 2.3, “To the Last Man,” last night. It was nifty to see (however briefly) an earlier version of the Torchwood team (from 1918).
Gave me a mental image I can’t shake, though:
Torchwood — Manchester 1973.
