Cindy McCain, noted Stepford wife and former prospective First Lady, made a surprise showing in the Victim Standings yesterday in a big game at Biased Media. Though it's doubtful she can overtake Sarah Palin and Tennessee House Republicans for pure volume of whining, Mrs. McCain was impressive in an interview with her daughter for The Daily Beast site.

McCain delivered an old-school performance, going with the old Repeated Claims of Bias Without Providing Any Evidence maneuver. Though it tends to be a less than interesting game to watch, at least she offered respite from league leaders Palin and House Republicans, who have launched the art of whining to such stratospheres they will soon be exhibits at the Louvre. Let's go to the highlight reel:

Well, I think, without sounding bitter--and I'm not bitter--I do believe there was a media bias. I do believe that the media had a specific agenda and with that said, the American people cast their vote. But I do believe that there is a voyeuristic media: Everyone is a reporter now because everyone has a camera on their phone, the face of reporting in general has changed. There is very little difference now between journalism and gossip.

I truly feel that unless the media goes back to unbiased reporting they are going to do a disservice to the youth of this country. The future of this country lies in the youth and we have to be good stewards of information and truth. There is so much more to it than just one article and people telling lies, it affects much more than that. It is interesting that it got to the point where The New York Times profile of me is being used as an example of the bias in reporting in journalism classes, at your alma mater, Columbia's journalism school, I believe.
