“The mainstream media loves John McCain and they regularly write fawning articles referring to him as a “maverick” and a “straight-talker.” Because of this, McCain polls well among Democrats and Independents.

However, the reason McCain is so well liked by the media is because they’re liberals and they love it when he trashes other Republicans. But, what would happen if John McCain actually became the Republican nominee? The same members of the mainstream media who gush over him today would turn on him in a Minnesota minute…” — John Hawkins[1], March 15, 2006

“A study of the three broadcast network evening news programs indicates John McCain’s media fortunes have taken a dramatic turn for the worse since early January.

But look at the contrast between his 97 percent positive number before the New Hampshire primary on January eighth — and just 30 percent positive since.” — Brit Hume via Newsbusters[2]
