To keep the insanity going, the NY Times today has a front-page article noticing "Dubious Claims in Obama’s Ads Against McCain, Despite Vow of Truth".
Again, rather late to the party (august bodies like the NY Times and CNN are in trouble when this blog is scooping them by a matter of weeks), but hey, it's progress.
Some have speculated that recent McCain campaign attacks on the media may have actually had some impact. Here is the McCain person's recent statement:
“Whatever the New York Times once was, it is today, not by any standard, a journalistic organization,” Schmidt said. “It is a pro-Obama advocacy organization that everyday attacks the McCain campaign, attacks Sen. McCain, attacks Gov. Palin, and excuses Sen. Obama.”
Schmidt continued: “This is an organization that is completely, totally, 150% in the tank for the Democratic candidate, which is their prerogative to be, but let’s not be dishonest and call it something other than what it is. Everything that is read in the New York Times that attacks this campaign should be evaluated by the American people from that perspective.”
Whatever the case, I welcome more balanced coverage and hope it will continue.
