Brian Williams actually seems to think condemnation from the New York Times is a handicap for Rudy Giuliani and an endorsement from the Times for McCain is good for McCain. This is a Republican primary. He should have said, “Senator McCain, the New York Times says you are the best and most qualified of the Republican field, how can you hope to win the Republican nomination with friends like that?”
Rudy’s answer was great and will endear him to many people. Whether it wins him votes, I don’t know. But reminding Republicans that the Times hates him is the kindest thing Williams can do.
Woops, Kate beat me to it.
