Oh, for Pete’s sake. First it’s the New York Times covering for the Obama campaign’s lies about their candidate’s positions, now it’s Newsweek scattering rose petals in the Prophet Barack’s path while warning about that mean-old Republican attack machine. Why Wolffe and Thomas didn’t put “I’m Barack Obama and I approved this ad” at the end of their article is beyond me.
To give credit where it’s due, Newsweek prints an email from McCain’s top adviser Mark Salter ripping several large holes in Wolffe and Thomas’ puff-piece. Perhaps some editor there still has a sense of shame. Be sure to read it. I think it heralds the campaign to come.
So, what’s next? The LA Times reporting that Barack Obama cures cancer? The San Francisco Chronicle revealing that John McCain hates babies?
