5. They've got two problems: McCain's flagrant disrespect for them, and the blogosphere
Edited on Sun Oct-05-08 06:08 PM by rocknation
The McCain camp--indeed, the entire GOP--couldn't care less if the MSM doesn't like getting only 90-second peeks at McCain's medical records or being ordered to treat Sarah Palin with "deference". They get away with it because they know that the MSM knows that it's in their best interests that McCain win. But the MSM knows that the less they fight back, the less credible they become, and the more their viewers will turn to--WAIT FOR IT!!!--the blogosphere for information that has at least a nodding acquaintance with reality and truth. While Olbermann, Maddow, and Cafferty provide the suggestion of fairness and balance, the MSM still basically lives in fear of incurring the wrath of the Bush White House. The disconnect between their reaction to Palin's misstatements, arrogance, and flirtatiousness at the VP debate and the polls overwhelmingly calling the debate for Biden is a perfect example.
