The coming campaign
by

This is interesting:

The left-wing blogosphere is declaring an all-out war against the mainstream media – desperately concerned that inside-the-Beltway reporter-love for D.C. fixture McCain is already creating too large a mountain for any Democratic nominee to scale.

“This campaign is not going to be between the Democrats and the Republicans,” said Philadelphia’s Duncan Black, who writes under the name Atrios and whose highly popular progressive political blog, named Eschaton, inspired the gathering of bloggers and political activists called Eschacon ’08.

“It’s between the Democrats and the media.”

Jay Rosen has lots more here.And if you’re interested in the relationship between McCain and the media I highly recommend this Rolling Stone dispatch by David Foster Wallace, published during the 2000 primaries.

On a related note, if your candidate is Barack Obama and you’re worried that the media loves the other guy too much… well, you’re probably unlikely to ever feel as though your candidate is being treated fairly, to put it charitably.
