What Price Media Bias? Obama Hopes It's $35M....

So Barack "The Unstoppable Money Machine" Obama was out-raised in June by Mitt Romney, $106M versus $71M. No wonder BHO hates capitalists so; they make him look bad at the only thing he is even somewhat proficient at - campaigning for higher office.  Professor Jacobson comments on the disparity:

Obama can’t buy this election. He’ll have to win it the old-fashioned way — with the help of the mainstream media.

Hmmm.  There's a $35M gap there.  The media will have to spend a lot of time on their knees to make up that difference. The question is, can an industry so steeped in red ink afford to go so clearly all-in for one political candidate that they risk losing 50% of their customers?

They can't, but they probably will anyway.  If they were smart (ha), they'd learn a lesson from another premium media branded that was destroyed beyond recognition by its association with the president...
