A Little Lead

According to NewsMax, Gingrich has pulled ahead in South Carolina, and now we know precisely why the desperate media shills for…somebody else…ran with the phony Gingrich non-story story earlier this evening.  It remains to be seen how much damage that story will have done to Gingrich, but hopefully with a couple days for the responses to follow through behind the initial hit-piece published on the most-viewed link- aggregater on the Internet, maybe he will maintain his advantage.  Better yet, maybe there will be a backlash against the media and the guy who would have been the beneficiary of a smear story.  From the Newsmax article:

An InsiderAdvantage poll conducted Wednesday night has former House Speaker Newt Gingrich now leading the Republican primary race in South Carolina.

The poll of likely Republican primary voters has Gingrich with 32 percent, ahead of Mitt Romney who trailed close behind at 29 percent.

The results are a significant reversal for Romney, who had led polls before Tuesday’s Fox News debate. A poll conducted by InsiderAdvantage last Sunday showed Romney with a double-digit lead over Gingrich.

Yes, this is the reason for Wednesday evening’s media hit-job. Let there be no doubt that the media sees its role as pushing you like cattle.  Maybe it’s time to stampede them instead?
