Re: What a Real Media Revolt Would Look Like

posted by on September 23 at 11:02 AM

A minute after I posted something to Slog calling on the media to stop covering the McCain Campaign, John Aravosis made the exact same point at Americablog.

Why is the media putting up with this? Just pull your staff from the bus (well, van) and plane. You people serve no more purpose than FOX News. You’re there to parrot what Palin and McCain want you to parrot. Stop it. CNN and CBS took a good first step today, by pulling their reporters from a phony Palin photo opp. Now it’s time to go for the Full Monty. Pull your reporters from coverage of the McCain campaign until Palin and McCain start acting like big boys and girls, like potential future leaders of the free world.

Great/gay minds, etc.

"Why is the media putting up with this?"

Because the same people who own the media own John McCain.

Just tell Sarah Palin: "Thanks, but no thanks."

Y'know, I was wondering why we don't hear more about what Obama has to say, since he actually has something to say. I'm tired of McCain and Palin. Don't give them anymore coverage until they have something substantive to say.

This is how elections are lost by the Democrats. It's not that the Republicans are making more noise, it's that they are getting more coverage.
