For those Republicans and Independents who plan to vote for John McCain because you like the way the news media likes himâ€”reconsider.
When it comes to the news media, it only likes McCain as a foil to conservative Republican doctrine. When McCain was opposing President Bush's tax cuts, or pushing campaign finance, the MSM couldn't get enough of the Arizona senator. The media likes him again because he's the anti-Mitt Romney.
Once the primaries are over, the MSM will turn on McCain again, just like it did when McCain was pushing the surge. Supporting McCain for his media supportâ€”it's fool's gold.
