Even if they didn't report it thoroughly, which is just your opinion BTW, McBush's connection wasn't even covered at all, until now, its about time McBush got his share. I am sure he can take what he dish out.

But shoots, which one should they cover? Palling with terrorists Saddam, AIP connection or Acorn, too many at one time, which do you think they should cover? They manage to hide all of them for so long.

Mccain wasn't supporting ACORN. He was going undercover to expose and get information on Obama's affiliation. Geez people.

I am waiting for the fair and balanced channel's reaction. We need more reporters who expose the politicians and not just sweet talk them.
That's so neurotic, to play games like that. And so unseemly for a 72-year-old man who would surely like to live up to his PR image as Mr. Honorable....someday, just not now....

Look how he was with David Letterman of all people, lying and running across town to Couric's show, where they'd been nice to him that time and edited his statement for him. Is that the way he'd play with agencies? Generals? His own staff? Congress? Other countries' leaders?

Like this:

We understand that in one of the versions of the bailout bill, apparently the Democrats tried to give an organization called ACORN 20%. All right. What is ACORN? And then we’re going to get into Barack Obama’s connection to it. What does ACORN do?

So, Miborn, did you ever make your first visit over to the website of John McCain, to see what he and Sarah Palin have to say about Roe v. Wade? I gave you a hard-to-miss link.

Basically, the McCain campaign has simply given us a finger by not allowing any decent "non-FOX" interviews. I wish more people were livid about this muzzlng of Palin.
This is a mismanged & dirty campaign - there is nothing "honorable" here. He cannot even manage his campaign and I doubt he will manage the people/agencies you mentioned any better. Poor judgement, erratic behavior, anger etc are all catching up.

Miborn,

Diebold machines, voter suppression of college students and foreclosure households, and also contractors with partisan ties to the GOP will be counting the 2008 vote in in Illinois, Colorado and Kentucky.

Republicans did it in 2000 and 2004. Of course they would do it again, but are McBush supporters concern?GOP Voter Suppression Comes to Wisconsin | Democracy and Elections | AlterNet (http://www.alternet.org/blogs/democracy/98702/gop_voter_suppression_comes_to_wisconsin/ - broken link)

This election will go down in history as the one the broadcast media ran and manipulated. It's been flat-out ridiculous since the primaries. If there's ANY firebombing going on, it should be a bipartisan effort at the cable news networks headquarters. They're no longer content to simply report the news, their goal is to create and BE the news. Campbell Brown and her little "soliloquies" are the most sickening.

Blah blah blah, its the media, its the internet, the truth hurts, so blame the messenger.

The media force McCain to hire a Saddam aiding lobbyist, the media force Palin to hang out with AIP, the media force McBush to hangout with Acorn. Can dish it out but can't take it. Oh the hypocrisy. now its is found out the ones really connected with terrorists and treasonous behavior are McCain/Palin, who also has connections to acron, you folks won't criticize it either?
