Despicable Journalism

By now many of you have heard about the New York Times article that leads with innuendos about Senator John McCain and a lobbyist Vicki Iseman.

I am not a supporter of Senator McCain and can certainly list a number of reasons why. However, quite frankly I find this article to be a despicable piece of "journalism" which epitomizes everything that many people have come to dislike about US politics.

If the New York Times has concrete evidence to challenge John McCain's ethics then they should write about that. But leading a political story with a titillating bit of gossip is unworthy of the Times and more in line with a Rupert Murdoch owned rag.

This article leaves me wondering whether this attack came from the far left or the far right both of whom would love to sink the McCain candidacy.
