A bad election for old media

Do not miss a Michael Barone article. Just don't. He worked for Fox News as an analyst during election night. He came on to explain why each state had been "called". And he may be the most knowledgeable person in America, as election politics goes. Read the whole thing.
A bad election for old media:
"Kerry would have been better served, it turned out, by apologizing early on for his 1971 testimony that besmirched all troops in Vietnam. He could have done so in the spring when questioned by Tim Russert on 'Meet the Press,' but decided not to. Memo to future Democratic nominees: You can no longer rely on Old Media to hush up stories that hurt your cause. Your friends in Old Media don't have a monopoly any more."
