After all, these networks - the corporate conservative media which McCain calls "his base" have failed miserably to call him out on his large flip flops and the scamming of his own election funding laws.


Ironically McCain now often hides from his base, despite their ignoring of his blatent issues and yet he still whines about the "his base."

The media does not want him to and if he does, they will all be at doing each other to tear him down over something more ridiculous than the next.

If I understand what you're saying, it's that the biased, vicious, leftist media, or rather, the PR arm of barry hussein osama's campaign, are ignoring made up stories about John McCain. Surely you jest. Or perhaps you are aware of some in depth call outs of barry's radical, racist and thug friends, his links to ACORN and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, savage attacks on regular American citizens and overall lying and flip flopping every time he opens his mouth that I am not aware of? The absolute truth of this matter is your guy has been given a free pass by his leftist media cronies because they know the truth as he does...if not for his free pass, barry would be down by 20 or, dare I say it, not even in the running at all.

Since you can't seem to grasp this, I'll repeat it -

Where would McCain have been if CNN, NBC, MSNBC, FOX & ABC wouldn't be there....?

Ignorant fools, stop blaming the media for McCain's incompetence in running his campaign.
His flip flops are so numerous the media couldn't even cover them all, talk about getting a free pass. His Libby connections, hiring of a Saddam lobbyist didn't get much press. If not for the media giving him the spotlight to his incompetent running mate, he would have been even further behind and most likely so far behind he would have bow out already.
Stop trying to hide this warmonger/nutjob combo's failures as the media's fault. Makes you look pathetic.

I like how people cry about the "leftist" media, when they are confusing the editorial media (which is naturally biased in one direction or another) with the news media - like the Big 3, who take neutral stances. The only ones claiming the media to be "leftist" are those on the very far right.

Didn't that same "leftist" media help spread the faux patriotism after 9/11, and failed (and still do fail) to cover the early days of the Iraq War in a neutral and non-biased fashion?
