‘Distortion, Innuendo, and Outright Slander’

That’s how New York Magazine describes the latest phase of John McCain’s campaign against Sen. Barack Obama for the presidency. McCain’s campaign has devolved into a childish, name-calling, wallow in the mud series of taunts.

Some in the media will now say that this is not the John McCain they know, that he is doing something different than they expected of him. But this is the true and only McCain. He is a craven, petty, volatile manchild unsuited for the office of the presidency. The press was just too busy currying favor with him to notice.

If the press is going to be sporadic in their duty of holding the candidates accountable for their campaigns, where do you go to get the truth?
