Shock: New York Times Snubs McCain!

Posted by Ryan on July 21, 2008

I’m absolutely shocked about the New York Slimes’ double standard when dealing with this  year’s Presidential candidates! 

Well, not really anymore.  Obama gets an op-ed printed with ease last week, but McCain’s gets rejected with suggestions for improvement, including a suggestion to “mirror” Obama’s piece!!!  Here’s an excerpt from the response letter sent to McCain:

“I’d be very eager to publish the senator on the op-ed page. However, I’m not going to be able to accept this piece as currently written. I’d be pleased, though, to look at another draft. Let me suggest an approach….

It would be terrific to have an article from Senator McCain that mirrors Senator Obama’s piece….”

This was written to the campaign of a distinguished Senator and militarily decorated man running for President, not an 11th grader submitting a rough draft to his/her Social Studies teacher!  This is a huge insult that the McCain campaign should completely take advantage of.  They are getting some press over this, but I think they need to keep the drum beating until they pressure the Slimes to print the opinion editorial as is.
