That's a strong statement of the power of the media.

When John Ziegler appeared on MSNBC to defend his interview with Sarah Palin and attack the media's treatment of her, David Schuster contended that Palin was unqualified for the job because 65 percent of Americans believed she was. That doesn't say anything about her qualifications -- it just says how effectively the media sold a message. Stern's piece is a shining example of how people will form opinions based on hype instead of facts.
