The NY Times recently ran an article alleging John McCain had an affair with a lobbyist around 10 years ago. They had no proof for the article, and not a single on the record source.
Ironically it has served to unite the conservative base around McCain. Previous conservative critics are now rallying to support him due to fury over the NY Times story – especially its timing. The NY Times has had the story for months and months and by waiting until McCain was the presumptive nominee, their motives appear to be purely to damage the Republican Party – otherwise they would have run it earlier on before he was the presumptive nominee.Tags: John McCain, media bias, New York Times, United States
