The No Talk Express

Friday, March 07, 2008


John McCain's contentious history with his hometown paper, The Arizona Republic, has included bitter exchanges and periods when McCain refused to talk with the paper at all. Politico’s media reporter Michael Calderone talks about the evolution of the relationship.

I have to agree with Jack, here.

On the other hand, I'm waiting for the Obama campaign to say that Sen. Clinton is equally responsible for the Impeachment debacle, if she wants to claim any credit for those eight years of relative calm and apparent prosperity.

I remarkably just heard about "a reporter who's had more success than us." Unless he's had more success than he's had you -- a nonsensical concept -- he's really had more success than you've had. In that case, he should have been identified as a reporter with "more success than we." Although this may sound awkward to some, I believe it to be better than your original, simply incorrect, construction. You in the media should know better.

The last two, and perhaps the only, reports with McCain as the focus have served only as a means to review ancient "scandals" in McCain's history.

I'm anxiously awaiting similar reports on Clinton and Obama. If you're looking for affairs, alleged and real, as well as dead bodies, you won't have any difficulty with at least one of these two.

The reports on Clinton and Obama and their respective relationships with the media have so far hardly represented equal treatment to these on McCain.
