Have Obama's Marching Orders to the Media Gone Out?

Detestable Andi suddenly very pro-Trig.

In thinking about this astonishing week, and what's to come, I want to go on record again as saying that the decision to bring up a child with Down Syndrome is one of the most noble, beautiful and admirable decisions any person can make. That Sarah Palin is doing that says a huge amount in favor of her. The love obviously being shown toward tiny Trig is also about as profound an advertisement for genuine, pro-life Christianity as you can have. It means that, in this respect, Palin has walked the walk of the pro-life movement - in ways that many others have not. In my view, and I mean this as passionately as I mean my criticisms of her public record, this really is God's work.

Are you congratulating Trig's mother Bristol then, Sullivan?

Seems like the new orders are "Avoid Backlash."

The media let its mask slip badly, the public got a good look at them. Their hatred, their unprofessionalism, their hypocrisy, their transparently urgent longing for President Obama and their willingness to destroy anyone or anything who threatens that.

Whether or not this is coordinated with Obama I have no idea; it's possible they themselves realized what a despicable spectacle they made of themselves.

Or it really might be Obama -- and his internal polling -- telling them to back off. Or maybe not "telling" them to; just sharing with his allies in the media what his own polling and strategists have found. Hey, they're all in this together; hang together or hang apart.
