Not that Tina Brown and the liberal media are suddenly going to turn pro Romney or Ryan, but they can see how turning on Obama might sell some copy and work in their favor. So they a publishing Niall Ferguson's article critical of Obama being re-elected and gave him the cover.
Of course, expect Frum, Sullivan and others of the Daily Beast's monkey menagerie to shortly come out with the argument for Obama. Update: Ferguson responds to his critics.
That said I am still glad Ferguson got his article and cover. Especially when you have a Newsweek cover article saying this about Barack Obama:
The voters now face a stark choice. They can let Barack Obama’s rambling, solipsistic narrative continue until they find themselves living in some American version of Europe, with low growth, high unemployment, even higher debt—and real geopolitical decline.
It is about time that the media started facing the truth.
