This post by Moe got me thinking (particularly the part about DVD sales).
The contrast between Obama and Bush is much more relevant, and that makes it much more shocking. There are dozens of documentaries about Obama's primary run and campaign, and on the front page of the Obama search I count twice as many DVDs of Obama's inauguration as a search for "George W. Bush Inauguration" turns up.
So, yeah. As if you weren't already aware, the media's in the tank.
