AP & McCain Secret Lovers?

Is the Associated Press in bed with John McCain! Some ultra-suspicious people say “yes.”

Take this AP lede: “The Republican National Committee demanded Monday that television networks stop running a television ad by the Democratic Party that falsely suggests John McCain wants a 100-year war in Iraq.”

Notice anything wrong with it? How about the little fact that they incorporated McCain’s spin into the factual portion of that statement?

    I’m not convinced by this example (though I DO think the mainstream media are totally tucked neatly into McCain’s briefs). In the context provided, the “falsely” can equally well be read as coming from the RNC’s claim.

    I didn’t see this kind of outrage from the RNC while John Kerry was getting swift boated in 2004.

    McCain is getting a free pass because the stupid democrats are allowing it by attacking one another to death.
