What's a Blog?

The New York Post today reports on a new nonpartisan study that confirms what Americans have seen playing out for almost a year – John Kerry is running a shockingly negative campaign. While the President’s tone has remained positive, Kerry, more than any other Democrat, has broadcast a message of negativity to America.
Okay, so where to begin? Well, there is the fact that they are positing that an article in the New York Post proves something. All that it proves is that the Rupert Murdoch owned New York Post is pro-Bush. Big surprise there. This is the same New York Post renowned around the world for their inciteful front page headlines, including such gems as this one about the male birth control pill:
... and a story about how it was scientifically found that children of abuse often turn to alcohol as adults ...
But beyond that, there is the reality to which we were all exposed and which clearly repudiates at least HALF of this claim. That being Bush's early and viscious (and inaccurate) political ads. Even John McCain said the president was being too negative too early.

Then there is the article itself which fails to report who did the study. All that the report says is that it was a "nonpartisan study." If it is a legitimate study, why is it that no reputable source other than the Post (not that I mean to imply that the Post is reputable) seems to have picked up on it?
