The Campaign Spot

Schmidt on the NY TImes: ‘It Is Not a Journalistic Organization, It is a Pro-Obama Advocacy Organization.’

In the eyes of the left, the comments of McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt on a recent conference call will be seen as a meltdown, a sign that the McCain camp feels its only hope is to “work the ref.”
In the eyes of the right, he’s just coming out and saying about The New York Times what many have thought for a long time: “It is today not by any standard a journalistic organization, it is a pro-Obama advocacy organization. It has attacked this campaign, it has attacked Senator McCain, it has attacked Governor Palin… There has been no comparative vetting of Senator Obama… This is an organization that is completely, totally 150 percent in the tank for the Democratic candidate…
Everything that is read in the New York Times that attacks this campaign should be evaluated by the American people from that perspective, that it is an organization that has made a decision to cast aside it’s journalistic integrity and to advocate the defeat of one candidate.”
