McCain is a Liar

In case you hadn't noticed.

Yet another dishonest ad from the McCain Campaign, this one called "Tiny."

Wow. That's so shitty. If only our media had the balls necessary to point that out. However, as always, they won't say anything. If they do, it'll be minimal and drowned out by the noise generated by their republican guests that they'll refer to as "balanced reporting".


That's why the Daily Show is the best news source on TV - they don't take crap and they point this stuff out when they see it. I think the rest of the media out there is so worried about being viewed as "balanced" that they sacrifice the ability to focus on truth in order to ensure that they give equal air time to that which is false. That way, those who believe the false crap can't say they're being unfairly silenced.

What a world.

As Eric Alterman once pointed out, *balanced* has come to mean that if you have one person on air to tell the truth for five minutes, you also have to have someone on to lie for five minutes.
