McCain's web site is whining about the media
This is on his home page:

It's pretty obvious that the media has a bizarre fascination with Barack Obama. Some may even say it's a love affair. We want you to be the judge. Click here to watch the new video and vote today!



How juvenile.

4. The media has been very, very kind to McCain. If he keeps dissing them, though...
he may find out that even sleeping dogs rise every now and then to bite at their fleas.

10. They are trying everything.
Just as Hillary couldn't figure out how to hit Obama, mccain hasn't a clue.

And, I think the mccain camp knows something is coming down the pike. THey know the coverage of Obama's overseas trip is going to be good, but I think something not very good is coming about the old one. THey are trying to head it off.

7. But it seems to be working.
The MSM seems to be walking on eggs to present a McCain interview whenever there is an Obama interview, same whenever Obama is shown on his trip, we get a McCain event. The evening news interviews granted by Obama may have been a blunder since he's getting the tough questions and McCain is mostly getting softball questions, which leads to McCain's attacks on Obama. The ABC news interviewer seemed a little tougher on McCain but he never asked if McCain was right in voting for war in Iraq, after McCain insisted he has been correct (Obama wrong) in the past regarding the surge.

Reminds me of the SNL skits during the primaries and all the complaints then about the media favoring Obama. They're not but the complaints seem to work in further pushing the MSM against Obama.

I feel the Obama trip has gone on too long and the media is losing interest, and desperately looking for 'gaffes'.

11. agree with the too long part, wrt the trip, BUT the M$M was actively
anticipating/hoping for gaffes, BEFORE he left, and predicted the very dire results of the slightest misstep, which would prove conclusively that he wasn't presidential timber

THEN, when he did as well as anyone could have expected, they IMMEDIATELY began taking him to task for being so presumptively ARROGANT.

they really do seem to be their marching orders from Karl Rove, because the arrogant/presumptive stuff came instantly and from all directions

12. They will probably cover this and ask why he's so pathetic
I hope they do something on the Daily Show about it, they would have a field day.
