In a chat with Neil Cavuto of Fox Business Network, Sarah Palin issues a prediction right after last night’s debate. “Ninety percent of the liberal media — the lamestream media — they’re going to say, of course, that Barack Obama won the debate.”
Though Palin is generally crafty enough to make highly squishy statements about stuff, this one is slightly fact-checkable. Running down just a few of the institutions commonly associated with media mainstreamness, we discover that perhaps Palin needs to recalibrate just a touch:
New York Times: “Polls show a strong debate for Romney.”
Washington Post: “Romney goes on offense, forcing Obama to defend record”
Washington Post: The Fix column declares Mitt Romney the winner, Barack Obama the loser.
ABC News: “Romney Comes Out Swinging”
CBS News: “Romney’s big night”
NBC News: Romney “feisty, long on ideas”
