it is sad to see that the MSM resorts to this type of yellow "journalism" supposedly to help smear Romney and to advance Obama's chances, but it only shows that obama and his supporters are desperate about the obama victory and they grasp as straws to make romeny look bad, but they only make obama look small and frightened. if they say nothing they would help him more, but that is why they are stupid. who cares what they write anyway, they are just despicable.

When it comes to opposition research, there is often only one difference between a candidate's vicious negative ad and an "investigative" news report: the undeserved patina of media "objectivity" and respectability.

Take the Washington Post's Jason Horowitz's 5,400-word "expose" on how Mitt Romney may have pinned a boy down and cut his hair in 1965. 1965? That's almost a half century ago. Even if every detail were accurate -- and they weren't -- a journalist could pull a muscle in the hyper-aggressive attempt to make it somehow relevant to the present moment or even the recent past.
