|Matt Taibbi, contributing editor with Rolling Stone Magazine, appeared on CNN on Thursday where he discussed the state of the presidential race.

There is a "relatively popular incumbent, the economy is not doing terribly," and the only reason the press suggests the race will be close is that "we have to sell advertising."|
