The general-election campaign for president is not yet under way, but clearly some in media have entered the Utterly Ridiculous Zone. On CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” host Howard Kurtz hailed an “eye-opener: the candidate with the best coverage during the presidential primaries was Mitt Romney. And the worst? Barack Obama.”
That’s not eye-opening. It’s a declaration that you’re blind. And deaf. And your olfactory glands are shot to pieces. When something smells as bad as this, odds are it’s rotten.
