I think the silent majority will come out in record numbers and vote for McCain. People don't trust the media to begin with, that's why they have dismal ratings. It will backfire on them.

Mc Cain is not going to win. Unless his buddy Bush pulls a few strings and gets him into office.

cheap propaganda, shame on the GOP propagandists!
Answered By: Pepeluches - 7/18/2008
I see McCain in the news all the time. In fact they always weem to be presented back to back. If one of them states an opinion, they immediately go to his opponent for rebuttal. Its all media circus and political BS anyway. It really comes down to who's lies are most convincing to you.

Obama invited the media along with him...McCain did not. Your loss. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/vote2008/reportersblog/2008/07/obama_trip_attracting_media_ci.html

not surprising. What else would you expect from the primarily liberal media?
Answered By: Leprichan - 7/18/2008
McCain creates the negativity himself; the media is not necessary for that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-zoPgv_nYg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFknKVjuyNk

That is the network's decision. They feel it helps their ratings when they report on Obama. Just like all those magazines that put Obama on the cover. For some reason McCain does not generate high ratings or sell magazine covers.

I will agree that Obama get's the most coverage overall.. But he also gets the most negative coverage.. Even FOX news gives him the most coverage.. Rep radio gives him by far the most coverage... More

It is funny, but I think it will end up being the "shot in the foot" thing. The less camera time McCain has, the better. Lets face it, the guy sucks on camera with his fake smiles and awkward humor. He is almost as bad as Bush. The more camera time Obama has, the worse it will be for him because he will be picked... More

Of course the media is going to give heavy coverage to the first African American to get a party nomination. As well, Obama is motivating young voters in a way that we've never seen before--that is also newsworthy. More than that, he is offering a message of much needed change. Whether you agree with him or not... More

"Journalists" never let the facts get in the way of a good story! Oh bummer, mammy o'bammy and the the zombies hordes have a novelty factor that entertains the "journalists"....for now. Fads have a tendency to rise and FALL rapidly. .

Hopefully, Americans are smart enough to read between the very liberally biased lines and choose the candidate that will be best for the country, not just best for the liberal media to further line their pockets.

It may have a lot to do with the fact that John McCain has been around for a long time - people know a lot more about him than they do about Sen. Obama, who's pretty much the new kid on the block... More

The media is hanging out with Obama to be there when he screws up, with the terrible approval rating Bush has and Obama and McCain are dead even in the polls, it amazes me Obama supporters can't understand that...why isn't Obama 20 points ahead of McCain, political analysts are asking the same question. Hillary was... More

Seems about the same here. I watch and read the news regularly and it acts like 50-50..
Answered By: mr.longshot - 7/18/2008
I don't think that at all. I watch quite a bit of political coverage and I've seen McCain's speeches, photo ops, overseas travel, in route press conferences, etc. I'd hardly call that amount of coverage "none".
Answered By: Marcia B - 7/18/2008
It's just that the powers that be have already determined the result of this November's election. The media takes the queue on goes with it. The Republicans and Bush enjoyed this limelight for 8 years so what's the big deal. If people are stupid enough to buy into what they see on TV then so be it. It will always be... More

McCain sucks I'm glad he is not, but so does Obama. Ron Paul all the way. If you listen to Obama he is not going to remove our soldiers and pull out of Iraq. McCain wants to invade both have no understanding of our national economics.
Answered By: burnbywater - 7/18/2008
Whatever. I've seen too much of McCain. Could there be a possibility that the media must do a thorough edit, before releasing speeches to the general public? And by the time, the editing is done, the news is too old to air?Besides that, advertising costs a lot, and McCain needs to save what little money, if any, he has... More

The right wing radio nitwits mention Obama a thousand times a day. The charges aganst him get more goofy everyday as well. But, given that no publicity is bad publicity these BS artists are getting Obama more free name exposure than he could ever buy. Meanwhile, they say almost nothing about McCain..except that he...
