It's been at least a half-day already with Drudge, bloggers, and talk radio highlighting the 2001 Chicago NPR interview with then-State legislator Barack Obama clearly laying out his socialism ideology, and still the major media outlets have no stories about it -- at least none that are in a high profile position on their Web sites. Not on CNN, not on the Washington Post or New York Times, not on ABC, CBS, or NBC.

This will likely be the story up until election day. But the MSM still haven't learned: that this 6-plus hours this morning amounts to an eternity in the Web news cycle; how to identify a big news story that harms their favored candidate; or why their industry is in the toilet.

Update 1:30 p.m.: True to form, CNN is emphasizing last week's Palin wardrobe controversy and the alleged whispers from McCain advisers that she is viewed as a rogue "diva."
