The McCain campaign has decided to commence firing on the NY Times for doing something evil and dastardly - their job.
When the Times reported that senior campaign advisor Rick Davis had accepted over $2 million in lobbying fees from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to stop more strict regulation of the two entities, they were reporting the truth.
Steve Schmidt, a top McCain strategist, responded harshly, stating on a conference call that the Times was no longer a journalistic entity. Schmidt called it a "pro-Obama advocacy organization" and claimed the paper "attacks" McCain every day. Schmidt went on: the Times is "an organization completely, totally 150-percent in the tank for the Democratic candidate" and has "cast aside its journalistic integrity and tradition" to get McCain.
Funny thing, though. Neither Schmidt or Davis pointed out any errors in the Times story. Not one.
