Skip to comments.McCain camp: Negative Palin press is spiteful
Posted on 09/03/2008 11:12:15 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
The McCain campaign says press coverage of John McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, has gone overboard, and that reporters are being spiteful because the campaign managed to keep the press from learning about her selection until they announced it themselves.

I think a lot of reporters best think twice or they will ruin their careers. This could bury a lot of the media. I also believe that most people are getting tired of the hate.
The McCain campaign is wrong. The media is on a feeding frenzy because they thought when McCain became the presumptive Republican nominee, they were assured of not having a single conservative running for president or VP.
Then McCain double-crossed them and picked Sarah Palin.
And, here’s a flash for Team McCain: The corrupt MSM is acting vindictively, not merely spitefully.
THANK YOU!! McCain better learn who he is dealing with and fast.
From the article:
A top adviser to Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama...also took a shot at Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent who Tuesday night blasted Mr. Obama’s claims to bipartisanship.
“...he turned to the American people who were watching and then flat-out lied [about] Barack Obama,” Mr. Gibbs said.
wahhhh wahhh wahhh.
What an articulate response to what was a very good speech, aimed at a crucial segment of voters.
The best defense is a good offense. Sarah will take care of things in the coming days, beginning this evening. Nobody is going to push her around. Especially not our press weenies and liberal Obama hatchet men.
“Then McCain double-crossed them and picked Sarah Palin”.
...I 100% absolutely agree! I also believe that the McCain are NOT surprised by any of this and that “The Bullet” has plans of his own. A la Karl Rove.
The negative, hateful, spiteful and venemous left wing press will regret the outcome of all of this!
"No John, it's because they hate you..."
Why do they attribute it to the wrong reason? /rhetorical
This has gone WAY beyond an investigation of her professional credentials and public record. This is a smash-mouth, brass-knuckles, muckraking, anal examination, MEANT to be demeaning and degrading. There is no sense of propriety, no decency, no boundaries.
Everyone who practices wickedness hates the light and does not come to the light, so that his actions may not be exposed.
Nice. Mac is playing rope-a-dope with the Drive-Bys.
Watch for them to overreact and assault McCain’s “hot temper”, “age”, “senility”, etc. The Drive-Bys will alienate even more citizens and hasten their own dinosaurian demise.
It’s the minions of the Evil One recognizing and attacking a Warrior of the Light.
Nothing less than that - recognize this for what it is.
The left has their secular messiah, and we have a warrior called forth to defeat him.
I was already on to the God V Satan battle that we’re witnessing, prior to Rush today - I’m glad El Rushbo sees it too.
Someone’s gonna think I’m a kook for seeing it this way, but none of y’all know me personally, anyway. :)
Spiteful is the least of their problems. They’re also unprincipled and loathed.
The MSM used to be able influence voters with subtle shading or spinning in a way that wasn’t open or obvious. Over time, roughly the last 35 years, the bias became more recognizable, and necessarily became more and more overt as it was less and less effective. This year, the bubble burst, and subtlety and shading are no longer effective. Now the MSM is waging open war on its ideological adversaries with lies, naked hatred and open contempt. The pretense and denial is over, and the MSM is fighting for its survival, hopeful of becoming a kingmaker rather than just an echo chamber for liberal dogma. 2008 is the turning point; America will be either manipulated by a political media that can dictate its beliefs and promote anyone it sees fit into positions of leadership, or the media as we know it will perish.
