C'mon Dean, give me a break

“If we win tonight, it’s going to be very difficult to stop us, the ultimate comeback kid,” Dean said.


Sure.

A
good Dean site which really looks at the coverage, and links to the NYT ombudsman making the point I always do:
The paper has made mistakes. Wilgoren's description of Dean listening to Al Gore announce his endorsement (Dec. 10) was inappropriate in a news article: ''Dr. Dean smirked his trademark smirk"; that's columnist language. The visual used to illustrate an article on Dean's temper (Jan. 3) was more problematic; it was the cover of a recent issue of National Review, with the face of an inflamed Dean above the headline, ''Please Nominate This Man." The caption noted that National Review is a ''conservative journal," but there's no escaping the fact that this wasn't an example of Dean's temper, but of what an avowedly partisan publication thinks of Dean's temper.

Emphasis added.
