Now the MSM Questions 'The One'?

Charlie Rose & Tom Brokaw

BROKAW: We don't know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of
his thinking about foreign policy.

ROSE: I don't really know. And do we know anything about the people
who are advising him?
BROKAW: You know that's an interesting question.
ROSE: He is principally known through his autobiography and through
very aspirational (sic) speeches, two of them.
BROKAW: I don't know what books he's read.
ROSE: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?
BROKAW: There's a lot about him we don't know. (source)

Charlie Rose & Newsweek Reporters (Evan Thomas and Jon

MEACHAM: He's very elusive, Obama, which is fascinating for a man
who's written two memoirs. At Grant Park he walks out with the
family, and then they go away.
ROSE: Mmm. Mmm-hmm.
MEACHAM: Biden's back, you know, locked in the bar or something.
ROSE: (haughty chuckle)
MEACHAM: You know, they don't let him out. And have you ever seen a
victory speech where there was no one else on stage?

ROSE: Mmm.
MEACHAM: No adoring wife, no cute kid. He is the messenger.
THOMAS: There is a slightly creepy cult of personality about all
I mean, he's such an admirable --
ROSE: Slightly. Creepy. Cult of personality.
ROSE: What's slightly creepy about it?
THOMAS: It -- it -- it just makes me a little uneasy that he's so
singular. He's clearly managing his own spectacle. He's a deeply
manipulative guy.

We were racist hate mongers for bringing up questions like 'Who is this guy?', 'Who does he look up to and associate with?' 'Is he an American citizen?', 'Where are all the papers he wrote while on the Harvard law review?"

It's amazing to me the MSM is just starting to ask these questions now... CYA I guess.
