All you need to know about the media, in two paragraphs

Politico has a list of the top 10 media blunders of 2008.  Coming in at number 6 is....

ABC Democratic Debate in Philadelphia: Co-moderators Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos faced plenty of blowback following the Obama-Clinton debate for spending the first half focused on what many complained were trivial issues — his relationships with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, and his stance on flag pins.

Response: Gibson and Stephanopoulos weathered the criticism, but also didn’t get another debate. Little was heard about Wright after that, or about Ayers until the McCain campaign went hard at the link in the final weeks of the race.
That's right.  The only debate where the media was even mildly rough on Obama is now an official "blunder."
