Quite a coincidence
Today The Guardian asks, regarding lame-duck Virginia governor Mark Warner, "Is this the man to put the Democrats back in the White House in 2008?" And, in a remarkable coincidence, The Sunday Times introduces the same Mark Warner to its readers by telling us that "'New Bill' emerges to thwart Hillary".
The Times says that:
As yet, few people have heard of Warner outside Virginia, but he is a guest today on CBS’s Face the Nation, a leading political talk show, and the American media have begun to pump up his chances.Looks to me like the British media, almost certainly at the behest of the Warner for President campaign itself, is following suit. So much for the notion of an unmanipulated media.
