Polls, Predictions and Pundits, Oh My!

Tomorrow, Tuesday October 28, as part of Middlebury’s “Meet the Press” series, Eric Bates, executive editor at Rolling Stone will give a lecture titled “One Week to go Till the 2008 Presidential Election: Obama, McCain, Polls, Predictions, Pundits.” Just off of a cover story interview with Barack Obama, Bates should provide a fascinating look at the campaign from the media's perspective. The event is free to the public and will take place in room 216 of McCardell Bicentennial Hall at 4:30pm.

Also, speaking of pundits — CNN's newest program D.L. Hughley Breaks the News premiered last night... I dare you to laugh. Trust me, easier said than done. But seriously, what does it say about our media when a "trustworthy" network feels the need to stomp on Comedy Central's ground?
