Analysis of the Media and Obama

Has the media been too soft on Obama? The Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism does very nice week by week snapshots of the election and coverage.

According to PEJ, if Obama had a free ride previously, it was over last week. Partly due to Clinton complaints, and partly due to the perception that Obama is now the front runner, his past record and general fitness as a candidate was the major campaign story last week. Followed by media self-analysis over whether they had gone too soft on Obama. Also of note, with McCain almost certainly the nominee for the Rs, he is declining in press coverage.
