McCain: Media Biased in Favor of Obama

By    |   Thursday, 02 August 2012 10:58 AM

The media has a bias in support of President Barack Obama, and that’s not going to change, says Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

"I think the media bias towards President Obama is just something we have to accept,” Obama’s 2008 presidential opponent told Fox News Wednesday night. “It's just the air we breathe in the political environment. We have to take that into consideration."

McCain said the press gave a negative spin completely divorced from reality to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s trip overseas last month.

“I watched Mitt Romney’s trip to Europe,” McCain said. In Poland, “he was endorsed by the great hero of the Cold War – Lech Walesa. The Gdansk shipyard was where this whole overthrow of the Soviet Union began.” Walesa, Poland’s former president, came to the fore as founder of the trade union Solidarity, beginning his organization at Gdansk.

Romney’s visit to Israel also was successful, McCain said. “Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu did everything but endorse Mitt Romney. They’ve known each other for years. Romney couldn’t have been more warmly received.”

But that’s not how the media played it, McCain said. "It [media bias] is what it is, and people like you [Fox] can bring it to the American people's attention. But honestly, I don't think it's going to change. It's just going to have to be part of what the Romney campaign is going to have to put up with."
