Here is a bouquet of items on Bomb-Bomb McCain, who's long been whoring
for the worst players in the corporate media--especially Sinclair Broadcasting,
which, back in 2004, stood out for the brazenness of its pro-Bush agenda. It was
Sinclair that first screened Stolen Honor, the anti-Kerry propaganda hit piece that was financed and assembled by the Bush machine. (So much for Bomb-Bomb's solidarity with a fellow vet.)
Of course, these guys (and gals) are all corrupt--a larger problem that we must address, whoever wins, or seems to win, the next election. In Bomb-Bomb's case, however, the hypocrisy is staggering, because of his meticulously cultivated image as an honest fella who won't cave to any "special interests."
It's also staggering that, despite his reputation as a "moderate" or "independent" type, he's actually been carrying a lot of water for a far-right media corporation that did all it could to help Bush/Cheney's "re-election" in 2004.
The vast corruption of our media system is an issue of profound importance--
an issue as important as, and fundamentally related to, the corruption of our
voting system. So what really matters isn't whether John McCain was schtupping Vicki Iseman. It's that Ms. Iseman was but one of many pricey lobbyists who have helped McCain schtup all the rest of us.
