Obama-love in the national media

Washington Post columnist Howard Kurtz examines the media’s Barack Obama lovefest. The article notes the cover of Time Magazine that stated “Why Barack Obama Could Be Our Next President”, Oprah and Meredith Viera’s questions to the Senator about running for president, Trib columnist Clarence Page’s exhortation for Obama to run, and Obama’s response to Tim Russert’s presidential query recently “saying he is thinking about running in 2008.” Kurtz wonders if the hype is really about a possible presidential bid, or merely about selling Obama’s latest book. He also wonders what will happen when the media inevitably turns on the senator. What do you think?

    Read the latest Harper’s cover story for an example of the media ALREADY turning on Obama…

    I’ll say I highly doubt he’s in this to sell books, he seems far from the type of person that’s in this for the money.
