When running for President, with a rep as media darling, is it smart to declare war on the press as McCain did?

A campaign is all about delivering the message to the people. When you decry the press, who is the intermediary of that message, aren't you limiting your message to those who attend your rallies or watch debates? The folks at the rallies definately aren't in play, they're your base. The ones who watch the debates only see snide remarks, dismissive gestures and witness your arguments and attacks falling flat.

Mccain hasn't ran a very good campaign. I just chalk this up on the "OUCH" list.

You make an excellent point but sometimes the deceptive enemy must be confronted. Obviously, the mainstream media is no friend of McCain - and has certainly boosted Obama's campaign at every turn.
