Media Stupidity

I just can't figure out how these things get written, proofread, edited and printed/posted. This is from a story about Kerry's tan-in-a-bottle and how important image is, or may it isn't:

It is also possible that Kerry, like many older men, thought a tan would help him get the chicks in. He needs them. Time magazine said he had somehow managed to alienate women voters, who normally back Democrats over Republicans by a wide margin.

Kerry knows the debate will not be about issues, but image. Important topics will be treated superficially. But if he thinks a tan will help him woo women he is probably wrong. Surveys show they are worried about terrorism, and wonder whether he can handle the heat - and not the heat from sun lamps.
So Kerry knows that the debate will be about looks...but somehow the voters identified as important here (women) are not all that concerned with it. I don't get it. Either I'm really confused or Caroline Overington severely contradicted herself in the space of just a few sentences.

The only reason I bring this up is that not only do I see the Media as having a bias and refusing to admit it and have a propensity for sloppy research (cough-Dan Blather-cough)...but they also seem engage in sloppy writing and thinking.
