Is Media’s McCain Love Affair Over?

Reporters forced to cover McCain’s daily gaffes and dissembling must be frustrated. Whether it’s McCain’s battle to redefine "surge" or whining about every thing Obama does, reporters must surely realize the one thing they’re not allowed to report.

Sure, it’s tough to follow President 27%. But the fact is, whatever John McCain once was, campaigning against Obama has revealed McCain as an angry, resentful, often befuddled old man.

Every reporter must sense this, but none will report it as his team works the refs with the phony charge they’re being unfair to their man.
