McCain's Base Goes to Bat For Him Again


CBS splices McCain interview clip, expunging his false claim on surge timeline and falsely suggesting he gave different answer

Summary: On the CBS Evening News, anchor Katie Couric aired portions of an interview she conducted with Sen. John McCain, removing a part of a response in which he falsely asserted that the 2007 U.S. troop surge "began the Anbar awakening." Couric gave no indication that McCain's comments had been edited in any manner, nor did she otherwise note his falsehood.

And yet McCain's octogenarian voting base is whining that he is getting unfair treatment from the media. They must be tapping into Cindy McCain's pill supply.
