This morning, Media Matters‘ Eric Boehlert (a.k.a., Eric the Excitable) blogs:

Ugh, first it was the AP, now Gallup. Beltway elites, still mocking Obama‘s Nobel Peace Prize, are not going to like this trend and, I’m guessing, will continue to do their best to ignore it.

So at around 9:20 AM ET, I typed “obama’s approval rating gallup” into Google News and was invited to read… “all 11, 487 news articles”:
