Philip, I’ll disagree with you only slightly.
This is the first time that the McCain campaign has been able to truly control a media cycle. But it’s a meta-discussion about editorial judgment and media bias — not about Barack Obama’s nonsensical op-ed, nor about McCain’s own plan.
Fine, it’s on the record that the Times might be biased against the Republican candidate (BREAKING STORY!), but how much do you want to bet McCain will just pass this opportunity up and instead let the media run with whatever they want?
