Carol Platt Liebau: Sensing a Threat?

Sensing a Threat?

Remarkably, the Boston Globe today publishes a story that might as well be a Democratic press release (and likely was).

Is it really newsworthy that the DNC is putting up an opposition web site to the Mitt Romney campaign? Surely a more interesting angle would be why they're focusing on Romney. Do they sense a particular threat from the Governor, and if so, why?

It's telling that the Globe -- no friend of Romney's -- would take the time to publish such a story, while The New York Times wouldn't dream in a million years of running an article discussing the proliferation of anti-Hillary web sites.

But that's the MSM for you. Fair and balanced . . . not.

If this is a partisan news story in favor of Democrats, then why does it say this: is clearly a partisan clearinghouse, painting Romney as a "flip-flopper" who has traded in the moderate Republican credentials he presented as a candidate for governor in 2002 for a new set of conservative beliefs in his campaign for president.

and this:

Asked about the website, Kevin Madden, a spokesman for the Romney campaign, said: "Democrat party operatives are going to continue to peddle distortions and try and attack the governor in every which way possible. Given their current crop of candidates, the last thing they want to do is to run against Mitt Romney, since he has experience, has demonstrated leadership, and has a stellar record of accomplishment."
