Media Makes Hillary Lose

Did the Media Put the Kibosh on Hillary's Campaign?

Call it an unintended consequence of a superattenuated campaign, but though I can't blame the media for being quick to jump on the "Hillary's Losing" bandwagon, I can't help but wonder if they haven't created a self-fulfilling prophecy. Is Hillary losing because we keep hearing she is?

And I'm certainly not blameless in the consumption of this notion — I have to remind myself that anything is still possible when I read campaign theories. Last week's New York magazine has an item called "Sliding Down-Hill" about which Hillary-supporting, NYC power-people stand to lose face when Hillary's media-hyped demise concludes. Is consuming this story way before its time, (or certainly before Mar. 4) harmful?
