Mark your calendars. I agree with a post from the Big Eye. Vaughn Ververs takes issue with a story announcing John McCain’s interest in the White House:
I can honestly tell you I was shocked today to see a story on CBSNews.com headlined, “McCain Eyes ’08 White House Run.” Shocked not from the revelation but from the fact someone actually thought it to be “news.” I don’t blame the Web site and I don’t blame the New York Daily News scribe who originally reported it or the AP writer who picked it up. I blame an overall media culture steeped in hype and a paint-by-the-numbers approach to political coverage.
