    A pretty cool compilation of editorials written during the 2008 Presidential campaign. Gives a fascinating glimpse into the reactions of the political right and left leaning media to the unfolding events. Naturally the articles on Sarah Palin are the best :-) Watching the evolution of some of the conservative journalists switch from support to "what the hell was John McCain thinking?" is pretty fun.

Gives a fascinating glimpse into the reactions of the political right and left leaning media to the unfolding events. Naturally the articles on Sarah Palin are the best :-) Watching the evolution of some of the conservative journalists switch from support to "what the hell was John McCain thinking?" is pretty fun. Mitchell also tracked newspaper endorsements throughout the year and provides some stats from prior elections when Editor & Publisher kept count and then how the results panned out comparatively. Of course, I enjoyed it because I am a total geek for these things, but it is pretty dry and certainly not for just anyone to read.
