A tale of media bias, lying, and disrespect so ugly that it bears interrupting a beautiful Saturday to mention.
We refer to the nasty piece scribbled by Time magazine’s Karen Tumulty that declares Senator McCain's ad targeting Senator Obama’s ties to disgraced Fannie Mae Chairman Franklin Raines to be racist. Why? Because Raines is black (therefore, criticism = racism).
Well, the old navy pilot knows when to unleash the big guns, and boy, did the campaign lay down some fire today:
The only problem with Ms. Tumulty’s story is that we also released an today targeting Senator Obama’s extensive ties to Jim Johnson. The ad is called…Jim Johnson. And Ms. Tumulty might have been aware of its existence if she’d bothered to call this campaign to find out the facts (reporting) before indicting us for racism in a half-baked, late night rant. Tumulty also takes Obama’s response, signed by Mr. Raines, at face value. The Obama campaign says Raines didn’t advise the campaign, and Tumulty apparently wasn’t interested in getting to the bottom of that either.
So we contacted Ms. Tumulty and told her of the multiple sources that tie Raines to Obama, including three separate instances in the Washington Post, none of which was ever challenged by Raines or the Obama campaign until yesterday. Tumulty did not correct her post, she simply responded “I grew up in Texas. I know what this stuff looks like.”
Well, now we all know what hysterical liberal bias looks like as well.
Can McCain simultaneusly defeat Barack Obama and delegitimze the morally corrupt media in one fell swoop?
I see a new Republican hero on the horizon...!
