Alright, so this video has been somewhat of a controversy lately for John McCain:
I’ll say the same thing I said about Bill Clinton when he was confronted by a reporter over issues about the Nevada caucuses (https://inkslwc.wordpress.com/2008/01/18/nevadas-democratic-casino-caucuses-are-a-go/):
Just like I said with the incident with Bill Clinton, sometimes “the media needs to be put in its place.” I think McCain was perfectly fine in going after the reporter somewhat angrily. And both Republicans and Democrats that I’ve talked to agree that the question about why he was angry was unprofessional.
The reporter didn’t give any background information about her question about his meeting with John Kerry, and the fact that he’s keeping a PRIVATE conversation PRIVATE is perfectly appropriate.
I don’t see why the media has made a big deal over this – a reporter was being obnoxious so he straightened out the reporter. It needs to be done sometimes (and probably more often than it happens now).
