Glenn Greenwald caught this video by John McCain's daughter Meghan over the BBQ hosted by the McCains at their Sedona ranch with a bunch of the media types that are supposed to be covering him for the public:

"The guys from The Politico brought her (Cindy McCain) flowers, and I thought that was the most adorable thing ever!"

And the wingnuts will still claim that it's a "librul" media. But this has gone beyond ridiculous...how can we expect an adversarial relationship from the media -- and like it or not, that's their job...the politicos don't want to give out anything but the most positive news, it's the job of journalists to dig out everything else--if they're going over to the candidate's home and bringing them flowers?

Glenn appeared on the local live show on San Francisco's Air America station yesterday to discuss the role of media and how they're failing us miserably. icon Download
