Uh oh, the bloom is off the McCain Media rose. They are definitely not working overtime to give him positive coverage. Now, while this probably could have been more damaging, it's indisputably very dismissive of the man poised to accept the Republican nomination for President of the United States in just a few days. Combine this with Time Magazine's "prickly" interview (for what it's worth, he's always been prickly, but the national media has always given him the benefit of doubt in the past) and we have a media no longer blindly willing to carry McCain's water.

By the way, because I have long maintained that the Republican Party are the masters of message control, what does it say about their feelings on this convention when they schedule it to start on a national holiday (with guaranteed lower ratings, since Americans will be taking advantage of a three day weekend, even if they can't afford to go anywhere) and the night that McCain will officially accept the nomination is the same day that the NFL opens their season with a Giants-Redskins game?

Maybe they're counting on the drop in viewership to diffuse the inevitable comparison between McCain and Obama's acceptance speeches.
