Free Ride McCain

Media Matters Action Network: McCain's Free Ride
Media Myths of McCain

So far there are only eight; the next one, #9: "The media honeymoon with John McCain is over," will be released on April 21st.

Go to the original post to see why these statements, repeated over and over and over by the corporate press, are myths:

1. John McCain is a maverick.

2. John McCain is a moderate.

3. John McCain is a straight-talker.

4. John McCain is a reformer.

5. John McCain doesn't do things just
because they're politically expedient.

6. Just about all you need to know about
John McCain's character is that he showed
courage as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

7. John McCain has too much integrity
to use his war record to his political advantage.

8. John McCain is the lobbyist's biggest enemy.
