‘It would be terrific to have an article from Senator McCain that mirrors Senator Obama’s piece,’ NYT Op-Ed editor David Shipley explained in an email late Friday to McCain’s staff. ‘I’m not going to be able to accept this piece as currently written.’
Now, if you read Sen. B.O’s op-ed you will see, Sen. B.O, only used McAmnesty’s name 3 times by my count. And if you read Sen. McAmnesty’s op-ed, he uses Sen. B.O’s name 9 times. Sen. B.O’s op-ed spells out what he wants to do with regards to Iraq, while Sen. McAmnesty’s op-ed is mainly attacking Sen. B.O’s view.
So, I can’t say I blame the NY Times for rejecting the piece. Also something to think about, would it be to far fetched to believe Sen. McAmnestys campaign knew exactly what they were doing? As in, they knew the op-ed would be rejected, and with it being rejected, to try an show how the “Liberal Media” is “bias”?
I personally really could careless about this whole matter. It’s just something the “Republican Blog-World” and the mouth pieces (Hannity, Levin etc..) can piss and moan about.
