LA Times Trashes McCain's Military Record

It's not as if we're not at all familiar with John McCain's accidents as a fighter pilot. It's been well-chronicled for years. Curious though how we're treated to another long story from a mainstream media outlet just four weeks out from the election.

I'll assume the Los Angeles Times will soon have an in-depth profile of Barack Obam's years as a community organizer and all his mishaps and faults in judgment.

The LA Times is in possession of a tape of Barack Obama praising a PLO operative, as noted here, but won't release it. But they'll trash a patriot like John McCain.

Media bias? What media bias?

Speaking of the distant past, Obama plans to dredge up the Keating Five scandal from the early 1980's. No doubt the media will be happy to cooperate with that line of attack.
McCain-Palin spokesman Brian Rogers said: "The difference here is clear. John McCain has been open and honest about the Keating matter, and even the Democratic special counsel in charge recommended that Senator McCain be completely exonerated. By contrast, Barack Obama has been fundamentally dishonest about his friendship and work with the unrepentant terrorist William Ayers, whose radical group bombed the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol. Nor has Barack Obama come clean on his close friendship with Tony Rezko, a felon convicted on bribery charges who subsidized the purchase of Barack Obama’s home. It's obvious that Barack Obama is frantically attacking because he knows that most voters find these kinds of friendships, and the failed judgment they expose, to be unacceptable for our next president."
