Obama's Honeymoon With Media Nearly Over

Will wonders never cease? The Messiah has turned the media in record time. The AP...yes, the Associated Press...calls him out over pork in the porkulus bill:

At least Route 31 is a road to somewhere. President Barack Obama had it both ways Monday when he promoted his stimulus plan in Indiana and later at a prime-time news conference. He bragged in Indiana about getting Congress to produce a package with no pork, yet boasted it will do good things for a Hoosier highway and a downtown overpass, just the kind of local projects lawmakers lard into big spending bills.

President Obama has no idea what he is in for. He promised hope, and every example of of politics-as-usual is going to be seen as a betrayal of that promise by his biggest supporters (and potentially biggest thorns in his side), the media.
