Good. McCain’s a liar. And Palin is a liar. And they’re burning all their bridges with the media. For all of its flaws, the media is still our last best defense at defending the truth. That’s why we get so upset with them all the time. As I think Atrios wrote once, the right wants the media to lie, we want the media to do its job. McCain thinks the media is going to help him win this election based on a series of lies. Time will tell if the media plays along. So far, I’d say they’re showing a fair amount of backbone, including CBS today with regards to standing up to McCain for lying about what Katie Couric had said (gee, McCain hiding behind someone else, no one could have predicted that).
