Cavuto Falsely Implied That John McCain Rushed Back to Capitol Hill After the Debate

Reported by Melanie - September 28, 2008 -

Yesterday morning (September 27, 2008) during a "special, live presentation" of Fox's "Cost of Freedom business block," Neil Cavuto hosted a segment with Bill Kristol billed as a discussion about "who's winning the bailout debate, McCain or Obama?" Cavuto introduced the segment with this: "Well, who's got the better of the bailout debate, John McCain for running back to Washington to try to cobble together a deal or Barack Obama for getting back to campaigning in North Carolina and letting others work on the deal?"

Comment: One got the impression from that that McCain ran back to Washington, as in to Capitol Hill. But no. He was hangin' at his condo in Virginia. He wasn't even in D.C. proper much less on Capitol Hill. One can work the phones from anywhere (even from North Carolina) but that's far from the boots-on-the-ground impression Cavuto gave.
