CNN Celebrates Springsteen Rally For Obama, Ignores Larger Romney Rally


CNN’s 1600 Report blog is currently featuring a photo of aging rocker Bruce Springsteen at a rally for Obama in Wisconsin today. The headline reads, “Springsteen energizes Obama’s final sprint.”

One might think it would be interesting, though, to compare and contrast the size of the crowd at Obama’s Springsteen rally with Romney’s rally from the same day. But, CNN avoids that comparison, perhaps for good reason.

The Springsteen rally was held in Wisconsin, of all states. Wisconsin is supposed to be a solid Obama win, yet here was the President and his personal rock star in the last hours of the campaign desperately touring the very state he is supposed to have a lock on. Worse for Obama, only about 18,000 turned up at the rally.

On the other hand, Mitt Romney was in Pennsylvania, a state he is supposed to have no chance to win. Even more amazing, Romney pulled in over 30,000 people to his rally.

Yeah, I suppose one can understand why CNN didn’t want to make that comparison.
