McCain Turns Sour on His Onetime Media `Base' as Election Nears

Quote:
McCain's campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, yesterday lashed out at what he deemed ``offensive'' and ``demeaning'' coverage and questions from reporters after McCain's running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, confirmed her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant.

``It used to be that a lot of those smears and the crap on the Internet stayed out of the newsrooms of serious journalists,''
talk about offensive and demeaning... . i guess anyone who doesnt eat out the palm of their hands is crap.

Quote:
McCain, 72, has accused news organizations such as the New York Times, Time magazine and the NBC network of being unfair to him. The campaign even considered pulling out of one of the three presidential debates because it would be moderated by Tom Brokaw, a former NBC News anchorman.
mccain just doesnt seem like a "take your ball and go home" sort of guy.

Quote:
There have also been a series of public rifts between the campaign and the media. On July 31, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis sparred with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell in an exchange about a McCain campaign ad portraying Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama as a celebrity.

``I'm happy to talk about more substantive issues the next time I come on your program,'' Davis said, capping the testy interview.
lol. if the ad wasnt "substantive" then why even run it? is rick admitting their ad was a bunch of "crap"?

Quote:
On July 22, the McCain camp assailed the media in an Internet advertisement and an e-mail to supporters.

``It's pretty obvious the media has a bizarre fascination with Barack Obama, some may even say it's a love affair,'' McCain's campaign said in the e-mail. ``The media is in love with Barack Obama. If it wasn't so serious, it would be funny.''
wow. theres that loaded catch phrase gain. if anyone would know about "love affairs" it would be john mccain right? now thats funny!


Quote:
McCain also took a combative stance in an Aug. 27 interview with Time reporters James Carney and Michael Scherer, refusing to answer a question about his definition of honor.

``Read it in my books,'' McCain said. ``I'm not going to define it.'' That exchange set the tone for the rest of the interview: McCain answered a question about his opinion on premarital sex by saying, ``I don't have any response to that type of question.''

He added, ``Write what you want.''
mccain better take control and reign these clowns in. i know some already see him as a lock to win, but theres still plenty of time for these buffoons to sink his campaign.

you mean like the molehill of the media mistreating mccain isnt the mountain they make it out to be?

interresting. (say that 5 times real fast).

again, mccain needs to serve his camp some stfu and tell them to grow some thicker skin becomming of a grizzled vet and war hero.

theyre not representing a sniveling little baby, and their blatant appearant right wing, elitist, attitude that they are above being questionned, can really turn off some of those fringe voters he is so desperate to catch.

Cyclical argument..."McCain is wrong to point out the media bias against him by pointing out the obvious media bias against him". Whatever...

A 22 year old DUI charge against her HUSBAND is not news, and has absolutely no bearing on her ability to govern. And what does her daughter being pregnant have to do with anything? It's ridiculous to see how low the NYT's and their ilk will go to subtly try and trash her out...

Obama On Palin Daughter's Pregnancy: Families Are Off Limits
MONROE, MI -- Barack Obama responded forcefully to questions about the news that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol, 17, is pregnant, saying family issues should not be part of this campaign and noting that his own mother had him as a teen.

"Let me be a clear as possible," he told reporters after speaking briefly at a Labor Day BBQ here. "I have said before and I will repeat again, I think people's families are off limits and people's children are especially off limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as governor or her potential performance as a vice president. So I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother had me when she was 18 and, you know, how a family deals with issues and you know teenage children, that shouldn't be the topic of our politics and I hope that anybody who's supporting me understands that's off limits."

Obama also strongly denied anyone involved in his campaign had been spreading rumors that McCain's running mate had faked her pregnancy to hide her daughter's -- a story that caught fire over the last few days on liberal blogs -- and said he was offended at the suggestion.

"There is no evidence at all that any of this involved us," he said. "We donít go after peopleís families. We donít get them involved in the politics. Itís not appropriate, and itís not relevant. Our people were not involved in any way in this and they will not be. And if I ever thought that it was somebody in my campaign that was involved in something like that, theyíd be fired."

I quess he wants the media to just..."eat out of his hand".

Libs are just mad because her daughter is having the baby instead of aborting it. The problem is, if the roles were reversed we would not even bring it up(pregnancy)if we wanted to because Obamas or Bidens daughters would sneek it to an abortion clinic and end the pregnancy.

Really, what did they expect was going to happen? The media will take a piece of string and by the time they are done stretching it, it will go around the world 10 times.

They've done it with Obama and his wife's not-so intellectual comments and they're doing it now with Palin - get over it and move on.

One day, both parties will get past all this BS and really consider the fact that they can't do much without the help of congress.

It would be nice if they could all just get along.

I wont go so far as to guess what their daughters would do....

But you are on to something....

1) The left belittles the V.P. nomination's experience while turning a blind eye to their own FRONTRUNNERS inexperience

2) The left (and I include the media in this category) makes a big deal out of the teenage pregnancy of the V.P.'s daughter while ignoring the fact that their own FRONTRUNNER is the direct result of a teenage pregnancy.

3) The left calls the right, "same old politics" and prop themselves up as the harbinger of change while excusing the fact that their own FRONTRUNNER is a product of the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine and rates #2 in pork spending and #1 in voting liberal party line.

Hmmmmm....am I the only one who sees this?
