Manipulating Political News

Steve Gilliard:

Having worked on campaigns, I no longer trust anything written about politics. I laugh when I hear someone like Howard Feinman talk about their inside knowledge. Unless he's worked a campaign, he has no idea about what he doesn't know. And it's a hell of a lot. All of these campaign books written by reporters hover between fiction and rumor. The amount of manipulation of the media done in a political campaign is truly stunning. Having done it, I am impressed by the gullibility of the people who cover politics.
