Big Dogs speaks some truth

Sure he's biased, but you'd be hard pressed to come up with an argument to refute what he said today in New Hampshire:
    "Sixty-seven percent of the coverage is pure politics. That stuff has a half life of about 15 seconds. It won't matter tomorrow. It is very vulnerable to being slanted and rude. And it won't affect your life," Clinton said.
The point really is that quite a bit has been made of what amounts to rather small movements in polls coming out of Iowa for the Democrats (certainly when compared to Huckabee's quick rise on the GOP side). And for Obama, he's essentially had a press honey-moon of sorts since polls started moving slightly in his favor. But, Obama has moved up so slightly that it's difficult for the press to find some explanation for it, instead they simply focus on whatever they consider to be small mistakes made by the Hillary campaign and so the whole thing rings rather hallow.
