Preview Of Tomorrow's Kerry Coverage

Dem immunity from press scrutiny should come of no surprise to people who are smart, ... you know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and do your homework ... and understand how the media works. And it will be working for John Kerry (right, in Holloween garb) tomorrow morning.

The source of my definitiveness? The afternoon SacBee political alert. The SacBee, as you probably know, is very typical of Demdominated media. Here's the rundown of the headlines on its daily eblast:

We start with some good news for Bush: Bush hails possible new North Korea talks. Then: Webb has slight lead in Virginia Senate race followed by Poll has Democrat trailing in Tennessee race.

After a couple non-campaign related stories, we come to:

AP Poll: GOP outreach to blacks falters, and after an IRS story, GOP reins in spending in 3 House races

Then, finally, we get to the 12th story on the afternoon summary of the day's top news: White House, Kerry exchange accusations. The story itself is relatively balanced, with a forceful lead:
The White House and Sen. John Kerry traded their harshest accusations since the 2004 presidential race on Tuesday, with President Bush accusing the Democrat of troop-bashing and Kerry calling the president's men hacks who are "willing to lie."
I'd say advantage Bush on that exchange -- but given that this is already deemed a 12th-ranked story, one thing you can count on is that this story will drop off the media's radar in no time.
