It seems like Hillary Clinton is not only running against Barack Obama these days, she's also running against the news media.

Early on in last night's debate, Clinton referenced a Saturday Night Live skit that showed reporters fawning over Obama and showering him with softball questions. She said, "Maybe we should ask Barack if he's comfortable and needs another pillow." Clinton also whined about getting asked the first question more often in the last several debates.

The Clinton campaign has been complaining recently – more so since she has fallen behind – that the news media is tougher on her than Obama. It's a tactic as old as politics: things aren't going well, blame the media.
