Media Taking Note of McCain's Dishonest Campaigning
A New York Times headline accuses the McCain Campaign of distortion:
Ad on Sex Education Distorts Obama Policy
Language in a Washington Post headline is even sharper:
McCain's 'Education' Spot Is Dishonest, Deceptive
Lies can be effective:
Surveys already show that most people believe Obama would raise their taxes - a regular McCain claim - even though independent groups such as the Tax Policy Center concluded that four out of five U.S. households would receive tax cuts under his proposals.
But lies can be exposed. As can the liars who tell them. If headlines more regularly call attention to McCain's deviations from the truth, voters might might begin to notice. It happened to Charles Babington, after all.
