Need any evidence? Consider this excerpt from Mike Allen's Politico.com blog --
The New York Times devotes the four middle columns above the fold to a Cindy McCain profile, 'The Long Run – Ambition and Ambivalence: Behind McCain, Washington Outsider Wanting Back In,' By Jodi Kantor and David M. Halbfinger: 'Cindy McCain, the wife of the Republican presidential nominee, has spent the last year pursuing a return to Washington: 'a harsh town' that does not suit her, she has said. Nor does campaigning, friends say. She has done relatively few solo events, grants interviews reluctantly- she declined to speak for this article - and in introducing her husband at events, she offers few of the heartwarming anecdotes that are the stock in trade of the political spouse. When she finishes, she stands silently behind him, sometimes with an approving smile, sometimes looking strained.'
They clearly didn't interview young Jack McDonald, who she takes care of when he comes to visit daddy at campaign headquarters.
The McCain campaign pushed back with unprecedented ferocity, with an 11:47 p.m. 'Statement on New York Times trash report on Mrs. McCain,' by McCain-Palin spokesman Michael Goldfarb: 'Today the New York Times launched yet another in a series of vicious attacks on Senator John McCain, this time targeting not the candidate, but his wife Cindy. Under the guise of a 'profile' piece, the New York Times fails to cover any new ground or provide any discernible value to the reader other than to portray Mrs. McCain in the worst possible light. ... It is a black mark on the record of a paper that was once widely respected, but is now little more than a propaganda organ for the Democratic party. The New York Times has accused John McCain of running a dishonorable campaign, but today it is plain to see where the real dishonor lies.'
This is the same 'propaganda organ' that Gov. Palin cited when (selectively but approvingly) quoting from a front-page article on William Ayers.
