FAIR on Media on Dean

A few months-old FAIR article on the media hatchet job on Dean and the Dean campaign. What a bunch of complete incompetents, the lot of them.
Most articles about Dean's supposed temper, though, were strikingly light on examples of what we were led to believe was an inescapable feature of his personality. "That Howard Dean has always had a temper is beyond dispute," asserted the New York Times (1/3/04), following that with timely evidence: "He mentioned it himself in an essay he wrote for his high school yearbook."

I still say Dean was the one candidate that the Bush team least wanted to face. The hatchet job on him bears striking resemblence to the hatchet job on McCain in 2000 as a man with too little self-control to make a good President.
