An example of news media analysis of The Question

We won’t add much comment here, except to commend Ben Smith for his fairness and to point out Joe Klein’s self-assured intellectual arrogance in trying to explain what goes on in the minds and hearts of Mormons everywhere, including Romney’s.  (Note the snarky Klein reference to sacred Mormon undergarments and how Smith good-naturedly slaps Klein down for it.)

Time’s Joe Klein on Whether US Ready for Mormon President from The Graduate Center, CUNY on FORA.tv

It’s instructive to see how left-of-center journalists like Klein see The Question.

(Thanks to Stuart Schultzke of Fora TV for tipping us off to this clip.)
