McCain: ‘I Do Not Complain About The Media’... Oh, really?
The tally of lies and falsehoods, at this point, has far surpassed the spread I anyone could have assigned for McZombie, in handicapping the truthfulness between him and Obama. It's really not even remotely close.
Here's the latest, despite the martyr card that McDepends has been trying to pull:
McCain: ‘I Do Not Complain About The Media’
Yesterday during an interview with Fox News’s Carl Cameron, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) astonishingly claimed that he has not had any complaints with the way the media is treating him or his campaign:
MCCAIN: I do not comment on the media treatment of me or Sarah. Complaining about something we are doing voluntarily that we want to do and get done I think would just not be productive. […] But I do not complain about the media and I will not complain because thats not appropriate for me to do so and frankly it doesn’t do me any good if I did.
Watch it (beginning at 1:15):
Anyone paying any attention to anything in recent weeks knows that this claim is beyond absurd. In fact, McCain himself just recently railed against “gotcha journalism” when CBS News’s Katie Couric asked about Sarah Palin’s recent claim that the U.S. should “launch cross-border attacks from Afghanistan into Pakistan to, quote, ‘stop the terrorists from coming any further in‘” — a position that McCain opposes and Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) supports.
The McCain campaign has been waging a well-known and well-documented war against the media for what they consider to be biased coverage. Some of the battles:
– McCain adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer blasted a recent interview Couric conducted with Palin as “a series of trapdoor questions.”Also, just today, McCain complained that PBS’s Gwen Ifill would be moderating today’s Vice Presidential debate because she is writing a book that is perceived as favorable to Obama.

For McCain, even media bashing has its limits FOX Embeds FOXNews.com
MCCAIN: I do believe that there are many occasions where the nature of the media is to exaggerate things and perhaps not be as accurate as we would like them to be. […] I love to bash the media all the time.
