Media Credibility Day Preview, the AP discovers Romney's Crowds

[cap­tion id=“attachment_40176” align=“aligncenter” width=“450”] Mitt Rom­ney at Hol­man Sta­dium Nashua[/caption]

When I saw via Glenn this head­line at the AP:

As Elec­tion Day nears, Rom­ney crowds are surging

I sim­ply had to laugh.

I’ve cov­ered Mitt Rom­ney events in Bow, in Nashua and at St. Anselm Col­lege. All three of these ral­lies had huge crowds par­tic­u­larly for a small state like New Hampshire

All of these events were long before AP dis­cov­ered large crowd for Mitt.

Stacy McCain as well has cov­ered huge Rom­ney crowds in Ohio

and Vir­ginia

Last night’s rally in Fish­erville, Vir­ginia, was so crowded, I couldn’t even get inside with media cre­den­tials, and really was lucky to get there at all. When I turned off the ramp from I-​81 onto I-​64, I was con­fronted by an absolutely grid­locked traf­fic jam, backed up all the way to Exit 91, more than four miles away.

None of these events were pri­vate, none of them were secret and the Media that fol­lows Gov Rom­ney could see them, yet the size of these crowds some­how were not news­wor­thy at the time.

So why are they news­wor­thy now?

I sus­pect Media Cred­i­bil­ity day is com­ing

For the few vot­ers who still believe them it is VITAL to the MSM that they be seen say­ing what is actu­ally going to hap­pen. As long as there was a chance that they could change the nar­ra­tive into a demo­c­ra­tic vic­tory they sol­diered on…So instead their new mis­sion is to be per­ceived as actu­ally report­ing news rather than spin­ning it. Thus comes media cred­i­bil­ity day, the day the press decides to act like actual reporters instead of lib­eral advocates

The clock is run­ning down and Far left delu­sional chimps not with­stand­ing nobody with skin in the game thinks Joe Biden turned this around.

So now comes the sto­ries of Romney’s strength, they will start as a trickle but as it becomes clearer and clearer where this race is going, they will become a del­uge until the media says with a straight face that of COURSE they saw how this race was going Romney’s way and will point to their cov­er­age in the com­ing days to show just how unbi­ased they are.

Just make sure you aren’t drink­ing any­thing when you hear them say it.

Update: Stacy gets it

Polls are lag­ging indi­ca­tors, and it is the trend that mat­ters. The RCP aver­age for Ohio has Obama lead­ing 1.7 points, whereas the lead was 5.5 points on Oct. 3. The lat­est poll from the Demo­c­rat firm PPP has Obama still lead­ing Ohio by 5 points, which goes to show you: Don’t let polls freak you out.

As this trend con­tin­ues expect more exam­ples of the com­ing Media Cred­i­bil­ity Day™.

Update 2: Insta­lanche thanks Glenn a sec­ond exam­ple here.

Update 3: Right wing news wants to believe but is ner­vous. John every can­di­date in any­thing resem­bling a con­tested race with the pos­si­ble excep­tion of Niki Tsongas has been run­ning away from Obama for a year. When I see such can­di­dates run­ning toward him then I’ll believe I’m wrong.

I DO advo­cate cocky, I just don’t advo­cate lazy.

Mitt Romney at Holman Stadium Nashua

When I saw via Glenn this headline at the AP:

As Election Day nears, Romney crowds are surging

I simply had to laugh.

I’ve covered Mitt Romney events in Bow, in Nashua and at St. Anselm College. All three of these rallies had huge crowds particularly for a small state like New Hampshire

All of these events were long before AP discovered large crowd for Mitt.

Stacy McCain as well has covered huge Romney crowds in Ohio

and Virginia

Last night’s rally in Fisherville, Virginia, was so crowded, I couldn’t even get inside with media credentials, and really was lucky to get there at all. When I turned off the ramp from I-81 onto I-64, I was confronted by an absolutely gridlocked traffic jam, backed up all the way to Exit 91, more than four miles away.

None of these events were private, none of them were secret and the Media that follows Gov Romney could see them, yet the size of these crowds somehow were not newsworthy at the time.

So why are they newsworthy now?

I suspect Media Credibility day is coming

For the few voters who still believe them it is VITAL to the MSM that they be seen saying what is actually going to happen. As long as there was a chance that they could change the narrative into a democratic victory they soldiered on…So instead their new mission is to be perceived as actually reporting news rather than spinning it. Thus comes media credibility day, the day the press decides to act like actual reporters instead of liberal advocates

The clock is running down and Far left delusional chimps not withstanding nobody with skin in the game thinks Joe Biden turned this around.

So now comes the stories of Romney’s strength, they will start as a trickle but as it becomes clearer and clearer where this race is going, they will become a deluge until the media says with a straight face that of COURSE they saw how this race was going Romney’s way and will point to their coverage in the coming days to show just how unbiased they are.

Just make sure you aren’t drinking anything when you hear them say it.

Update: Stacy gets it

Polls are lagging indicators, and it is the trend that matters. The RCP average for Ohio has Obama leading 1.7 points, whereas the lead was 5.5 points on Oct. 3. The latest poll from the Democrat firm PPP has Obama still leading Ohio by 5 points, which goes to show you: Don’t let polls freak you out.

As this trend continues expect more examples of the coming Media Credibility Day™.

Update 2: Instalanche thanks Glenn a second example here.

Update 3: Right wing news wants to believe but is nervous. John every candidate in anything resembling a contested race with the possible exception of Niki Tsongas has been running away from Obama for a year. When I see such candidates running toward him then I’ll believe I’m wrong.

I DO advocate cocky, I just don’t advocate lazy.
