No real disagreement there. Frankly, both you and I know that if the press reported matters factually and accurately (i.e. did not feel a need to "balance" perspectives from one side with claims from the other, regardless of how ridiculous one of these views might be), there really wouldn't be much of contest when it came to elections or primaries. But creating a situation where it's a close race keeps the public in suspense and ends up being more profitable for the media.
