MSM/DNC starts early.

MSM/DNC won't even let the dust settle before starting its attacks on Pope Benedict XVI.

Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Malkin have detailed some of the more vicious attacks so far.

But as far as good old fashioned MSM/DNC propaganda is concerned, nothing beats Reuters' subtle ventriloquist journalism and well poisoning technique:
Ratzinger, the strict defender of Catholic orthodoxy for the past 23 years, was elected Pope on Tuesday despite a widespread assumption he was too old and divisive to win election.

Ventriloquist journalism is category # 3 on the bias list. Referring to a "widespread assumption" is an MSM/DNC commonly used technique that allows MSM/DNC to hide behind unnamed "others" as it spreads its propaganda.

MSM/DNC is not "biding its time" as they did in the wake of the successful Iraqi elections. Why it would pounce immediately on this story while biding its time after the Iraqi elections [to use one example] is the subject of a much more detailed post. In this case, MSM/DNC has the opportunity to poison the well early. That opportunity did not exist in the immediate aftermath of the Iraqi elections. We can never learn enough about MSM/DNC strategy.
