Welcome to our world, Johnny Mac

It's nice to know that, even late in life, you can still learn valuable lessons.  At the ripe old age of 71, it just dawned on Sen. McCain that NBC News is slanted toward Obama. 

After Andrea Mitchell aired her belief that the theory that John McCain must have cheated in the Saddleback Forum, McCain's campaign manager Rick Davis sent off a letter to president of NBC News:

Indeed, instead of taking a critical journalistic approach to this spin, Andrea Mitchell did what has become a pattern for her of simply repeating Obama campaign talking points.

This is irresponsible journalism and sadly, indicative of the level of objectivity we have witnessed at NBC News this election cycle. Instead of examining the Obama campaign's spin for truth before reporting it to more than 3 million NBC News viewers, Andrea Mitchell simply passed along Obama campaign conspiracy theories. The fact is that during Senator Obama's segment at Saddleback last night, Senator McCain was in a motorcade to the event and then held in a green room with no broadcast feed. In the forum, John McCain clearly demonstrated to the American people that he is prepared to be our next President.....
I'm going to let the past two days of actually liking John McCain wash over me, because I'm sure it won't last.
