John Kullman, writing at, notes that the “90% Myth” has “gone the way of the dinosaur” in mainstream media reporting. Indeed, reporting on the Mexican drug war in general has joined Hillary Clinton’s favorite myth down the memory hole. Kullman proposes that the media has opted for silence rather than risk two equally unpleasant descriptions of The One in their reporting: That either Obama is a devious and evil politician ginning up support for gun control in the US; or, that he’s an incompetent community organizer who’s in over his head and not the managerial genius that they presented to the American People.

Can you say “doubleplus ungood, rectify fullwise”?
