New York Times Rejects McCain Editorial

An editorial written by Republican presidential candidate John McCain has been rejected by NYT Op Editor David Shipley. You remember the name, Bill Clinton’s Special Assistant and Speech writer. It appears the Op-ed piece sent by Barrack Obama was printed, but when McCain tried to rebut the article his was rejected. Oh, no there is no bias here; Shipley was quoted saying “It would be terrific to have an article from Senator McCain that mirrors Senator Obama’s piece. To that end, the article would be articulate, in concrete terms, how Senator McCain defines victory in Iraq. Does this establish that the once grand NYT is now cowered itself to be the talking points for the left. The assertion itself is almost liable, did he say that a gentleman running for President is not articulate, does not write in concrete terms and should not have the opinions of disagreement with the other candidate but also ones in line with the NYT. This just gets worse and worse as it is no wonder that decline of the circulation of the once Fit to Print broadsheet is only getting into just over 1 million homes and dropping fast. The good news is the Op-ed piece has shown up all over the Internet so you can hunt it out and read for yourself. This is wrong on two counts, the first an op-ed piece should be able to come from a miner to the President and they all should be treated the same. The other problem and the bigger issue is just because McCain believes the war must end with a US victory and Obama just wants to cut and run, does not mean because the newspaper agrees with Obama, that their voices are the only ones that can be heard.
