Bad economic news always a surprise to the pro-Obama media

To reinforce the righteousness of my insightful column last week, consider this similar piece by Michael Barone pointing out how bad economic news is always "unexpected" when reported by the pro-Obama mainstream press corps.

"It's obviously going to be hard to achieve the unacknowledged goal of many mainstream journalists -- the president's re-election -- if the economic slump continues. So they characterize economic setbacks as unexpected, with the implication that there's still every reason to believe that, in Herbert Hoover's phrase, prosperity is just around the corner", says Barone.

Brother Barone hits the nail on the head, again.
