5. But it's worse than "giving a pass".
The media are actively suppressing information voters need to know to properly evaluate mccain as a candidate and potential president. They edit his interviews to conceal errors and gaffes, excise comments made by others concerning his marital infidelities, etc., etc.

Would mccain be that much better than Obama for the media and corporate elites that they have to bend over backwards to misrepresent him to the public? (And BTW, what kind of "journalism" is that supposed to be?) And what if we elect mccain and then find out he's no good, like what happened with bush?
