Warning! State of Emergency!

Evan Thomas, the assistant managing editor of Newsweek, suggested on a PBS program that media bias gave John Kerry an advantage "worth maybe 15 points" in his 2004 presidential bid. I was taken aback by disbelief.

This organized and orchestrated swine flu scare and our current solemn "state of emergency", I think, shows just how far off Thomas was in his underestimation of the impact the media has over the nation as a whole.
