McCain has far less charisma than Obama. The media determines everything these days. Put 2 & 2 together.

Well when you run a negative campaign..Then the reporting will be negative!

What do they expect!
Are they not suppose to report on what is said at speeches and what his campaign representatives say in interviews!Not Factcheck the lies they utter daily?
If they were positive and had a positive campaign then the reporting would be positive.
Stop playing the Professional victim card John Mccain!

The most interesting part of this story to me is the fact that the candidate with the highest poll numbers had the best coverage... seems like an obvious observation... people like a winner. And they like a story. McCain's offered more to talk about in the last few weeks, with Palin and the attacks, so obviously he's going to be covered more than a guy who is simply cool as a cucumber with a solid, unwavering message.

It is interesting that McCain used to have a pretty good bond with the media. What happened???

McCain may be the best candidate with the worst-run campaign we've ever seen. The strategists who worked on his campaign should never be hired again. He is a wonderful man of honor and integrity who is emminently qualified to lead us, but few Americans realize that because his message has been stilted and disjointed from day one, with far too many gaffes and changes of direction. The media pounces whenever it smells blood, so it is no wonder they have focused negatively on McCain. So sad.

This just in:

McCain campaign worker fakes attack she blamed on "big black man" over her bumper sticker. Police broke her down with polygraph.

She scratched a "B" on her face; too dumb to realize that when you spell something in the mirror; it will turn out BACKWARDS~ what an idiot! Just another dumb ploy by a McCain supporter! The intelligence level of his supporters are clear to see!

The entire U.S. political system is flawed and outdated. It's depressing. I wish someone innovative would emerge.
