Today’s bonus media failures quote (there’s no shortage)

The AP can’t be bothered with polling

From a particularly dreadful Saturday dispatch:

Every day, the economy is becoming more and more an Obama economy.

As we noted the other day, the latest NBC/WSJ poll found that a strong majority of Americans (66 percent) won’t begin to assign to Obama responsibility for the performance of the economy until 2010, and 43 percent won’t do so until 2011. 

But news outlets like the AP don’t care what Americans think. They’re assigning Obama responsibility for the economy today because, c’mon, he’s already been president for like  50 days, right?
