In the Presidential race, CBS' Jim Axelrod covered the same money troubles that NBC's Andrea Mitchell found in Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign. Instead of campaigning in Pennsylvania "she is flying to California--a state she won two months ago--for two days of fundraisers." Rodham Clinton stuck to her Pennsylvania theme before she left, styling her determination not to quit the race after Philadelphia's Rocky Balboa. Axelrod stuck with that role model, calling the candidate "bruised and battered" by his colleague Sharyl Attkisson's coverage on the former First Lady's falsehoods about Bosnian sniper fire last Monday and Tuesday. When Rodham Clinton's standing in national polls declined, her campaign admitted to Axelrod that Attkisson's story "was the cause."
