Does The Media Fear Fred Thompson?

Melanie Morgan provides evidence that the media's criticisms of Fred Thompson echo the same hollow arguments they used against Ronald Reagan 25 years ago. She says that unlike the current crop of declared Republican and Democrat candidates, who have spent years plotting and scheming about how they could win their way to the White House, Fred Thompson is truly being drafted to run by people who are sick of abandoned principles and lack of a moral center.

When moments like this occur, occupants of the political and media establishment seem to shudder with convulsions. It ain't pretty, but it isn't surprising.

Meanwhile, for a guy that's not even officially in the race, he's doing pretty good so far:

While Rudy Giuliani is still in first place in the race for the Republican preference for President, he has dropped by eight points from last month and former Senator and television star Fred Thompson is catching up. Three in ten adults who say they will vote in a Republican primary or caucus say they would vote for the former mayor while 22 percent say they would vote for Fred Thompson. Not all of Giuliani's losses are Thompson's gains. Mitt Romney also sees a small rise this month - up from eight percent last month to 11 percent this month. Even with all the discussion of his "2.0 version" of his campaign, Senator John McCain's showing has not changed from last month and is still at 18 percent.
