John McCain Vs. Rupert Murdoch

Reported by Janie - November 18, 2005

Yesterday (11/17) The New York Post, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, published an op-ed piece written by Senator John McCain defending the War in Iraq, and why he voted "no" on the two amendments this week in regards to troop withdrawal, setting a timeline to bring them home, and having the President give Congress regular updates on the war.

But now McCain is livid with the Post. Why? Because he gave them the leniency to write the title of the article and they chose the sensational, yet inaccurate title, "Aiding and Abetting", to which Senator McCain responded on Hardball with Chris Matthews: "I think it's outrageous."

In an effort to spin the article to once again make Democrats look bad, and continue this partisan divide permeating through out our country, Murdoch's minions changed the tone of the piece and made it appear that McCain felt those voting for these amendments were traitors and supporting the insurgency.

McCain refused to stand up to Bush in 2000, but will he now have the spine to stand up to Rupert Murdoch?
