More from ABC News> Even Fox News objected to McCain Camps attempt to shield Palin from media

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/09/mccain-...

<snip>

However today the McCain campaign told media covering Palin's trip to New York that they would allow only one editorial person inside.

Then the campaign scaled back further, saying it will only allow a camera and no editorial presence.

The networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Fox fiercely objected to the McCain campaign's apparent effort to try to shield Palin from questions. Networks voted today to not use any video coming out of Palin's meeting as a protest.

Palin has not held a news conference since being selected as McCain's running-mate, nor taken questions from her traveling press corps, frustrating journalists assigned to cover Palin for the election.

2. Fox should be pissed, they have the script ready to go
all they have to do is cut and paste "Palin" over "Bush" from 4 years ago

3. Wow. All of them? Heh heh. I guess they realize they're just
being used as free advertisement for McFuckingNuts and Mooselips.

5. The idiots at McCain HQ must know that the longer they shield her, the worse it's going to be...
...when they have to cave and let her take questions.

This is great. :bounce:

11. Maybe they don't plan on her EVER answering questions.
When was the last time you heard Dick Cheney answer a question? The 2004 Debate?

6. Cool - someone posted that CNN pulled their alloted camera from the
meetings -- Happy to hear the other networks are calling bullshit, too.

7. I hope this is the news they report on the meetings - that Palin allowed NO press.

8. This sh#$ is supposed to be "helping" women? It is a disgrace and an embarrassment.
How much is she actually setting back women by her and the McCain campaign's ridiculous actions. It is like they are intent on ruining any progress from Hillary's campaign. I wasn't for Hillary in the primaries but noone questioned whether she was smart enough and tough enough to do the damn job. I'm so disgusted by Palin and McCain I can hardly stand it.
