CBS covers up a McCain screw-up

http://www.crooksandliars.com/.....interview/

Quote:
As C&L and many others have reported last night, CBS news had a huge scoop Tuesday night on John McCain, because he falsely claimed that the surge was responsible for the “Sunni Awakening in Anbar.” That is FALSE. The Sunnis changed positions before the surge was ever discussed so—McCain once again makes a major mistake on the one issue his campaign is running on—The Iraq war.

However, CBS probably violated its own rules (Standards and Practice) by altering the video of Katie Couric’s interview with McCain that left out his major blunder on this issue and then broadcast it on our airwaves. CBS should not paste together separate answers from different questions to make it appear like an answer was fluid. It was completely taken out of context.

He'll say anything to continue his war. Truth has never been a matter for concern.

He's like the grumpy old Great Grandpa you have to wake up for dinner

"I was up drag-nabbit! I was watchin' the June Allyson show on the television. Leave me alone!!!"

You just need to let him run on and make believe you didn't hear him

If I know my Republicans right (and I do) McCain is lying to himself. If you convince yourself that your side is de-facto good, righteous and holy and that the other side is bad, unrighteous and unholy, then it's very easy to gloss over facts, pay half attention, reject out of hand things that don't agree with your wolrdview and to rationalize the shortcomings or wrongdoings of people on your own side of the fence. You'll start straining gnats and swallowing camels. That's what McCain is doing here, swallowing camels (no pun intended).

Heck, I spent 20 years doing the same thing, thinking I was the clearest most astute political thinker in the world.

Yeah... but what about the so-called "liberal" media who says basically nothing when these gaffs occur and when Barack says something even the least bit argumentative it's all out armaggedon
