Ben Smith on David Freddoso
by

Ben Smith’s review in Politico of David Freddoso’s now-released The Case Against Barack Obama was mostly positive, noting that Freddoso goes more in depth about the presumptuous Democratic nominee. I think Smith softpedals on Obama’s tendency to misrepresent himself — one gets the impression from the review that Obama’s more of a pragmatic centrist liberal. I somehow doubt that this is the portrait Freddoso was painting.

And I don’t know what to make of this line:

More of “The Case Against Barack Obama” rehashes familiar complaints, though in more detail – and often with more nuance, if not much sympathy – than you’re likely to see in the conservative media.

Indeed, we conservative media outlets thrive on providing as little detail as possible. Why tell the whole story when you can simply whisper middle names and the word “risky”?

I’m going to walk across the street to Politico‘s offices and drop off a copy of our thick magazine to show just how MUCH detail we go into on pretty much anything. Thanks for selling the right short, there, Ben!
