"It's an organ of the Democratic National Committee," says Steve Schmidt, a senior strategist for John McCain's campaign. "It's a partisan advocacy organization that exists for the purpose of attacking John McCain."TPJ: This is hilarious given that McCain has gotten a free pass from the media for months now and notice how they don't say that FOX News is biased toward him?
"To call us an arm of the DNC is a joke," he says. "We have people with multiple points of view. Everyone is getting a little thin-skinned. We argue and debate every topic." Terry McAuliffe, chairman of Hillary Clinton's campaign, says Matthews has been "in the tank" for Barack Obama "from Day One" and is practically "the Obama campaign chair."
TPJ: Again, hilarious when you consider how much MSNBC seared Barack during the Rev. Wright controversy. It lead most of their news channels for weeks on end and they beat him up pretty badly. In addition to covering his "bitter" remarks for a long period of time as well. He has taken his fair share of criticism from MSNBC too.
Besides, it has been clear fro awhile now that Clinton doesn't really have a chance to catch up to Obama and win the nomination. So of course they are going to speak of him as the likely nominee!! And what about Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan who have been very critical of Obama and supportive of Hillary? David Gregory is quite critical of Obama on many occasions too.
Meanwhile, former press secretary Scott McClellan has just written a highly critical book of President Bush that says Bush "manipulated" the public and was "not open an forthright about the war" in the lead up to the Iraq war. In addition his book says that Bush does not reflect or apologize. His book also says that Rove and Libby might have colluded together to about Plame case controversy. McClellan also says that Bush, "would come to believe that sometimes he convinces himself to believe what suits his needs at the moment."
This is nothing new to us who had these suspicions for some time but it is damning coming from such a Bush loyalist who was with W from his Texas days.
