As bad as the press wants to make it.
I can't help but think that they may be getting ready to turn over on this commie. I'm seeing more and more random acts of journalism. ABC produces evidence that more security was requested in Benghazi. CNN finds journal.
At some point, they may decide that they are taking too big of a beating by propping up the pretender. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em (meaning join "us").
Here's the scenario: Top execs of the MSM meet with Axelrod - "If you can't give us any more dirt on Romney, you'll lose, and the investigations will begin in January - and we aren't going down with you. So put up or shut up."
