It's not surprising that McCain's Media must defend him at every turn. Here's a typical example from emailer Candice:

On Friday night April 4th's Nightly News, Brian Williams made the claim that
McCain had been well received by the crowd at the Motel monument site where
Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered. Not exactly the truth -- in a live

the legislation to make his birthday a national holiday.

We know that wasn't the case, Mr.Williams.
