#78: Creating the News
Bill Keller, executive editor of the New York Times says that they reported the Bill Ayers story when they did because the McCain campaign had been pushing them to do it. This contradicts Sarah Palin's claim that she brought it up on the campaign trail because she was "responding to the news of the day." I'm not sure who's more Maverick in this case. The McCain camp for telling the New York Times what to report, or the New York Times for listening to them?
