Is the MSM turning on Obama? Just a little?

I've seen this in a few different places today (including Badger Blogger, Fairly Conservative, and Stepping Right Up): CBS with a – well, not critical exactly, but not not critical, either – expose on Obama’s fundraising.

The piece highlights Obama's anonymous donors like “Doodad,” and also the vast amounts given Obama by financial interests.


I wish they’d made the connection between those financial interests and the $700 billion “bailout” a little clearer, and I wish they’d have pointed out that Obama is the second biggest recipient of political money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the last ten years, even though he’s only been in Washington for four.

Still. Is anybody else noticing a slight drift away from Obamamania in the MSM?

There’s also this, via Gateway Pundit: another local news channel asking some tough questions of Joe Biden and – according to this report, at least – being banned for it.

This latest station is in Philly, which means it's probably all Skye's doing.
