McCain said he's fired up and ready to go. Hahaha! HAHA.

He is an embarrassment. Is he going to plagiarize the rest of Obama's "platitudes" too, one by one?

Wow. I hope they get home sometime soon.

That McCain speech was really dull in comparison to Obama's speech. He sounded tired.

The "like hope but different" was a joke, McCain - not a recommended campaign strategy.

What it seems 2861U2 doesn't quite understand is that the media is in this to win viewers. But then this would explain why he believes everything Fox News says, as he genuinely thinks they're reporting rather than just doing what will win them a substantial market share.

I just love when far right extremist Americans get all up in arms about "liberal media bias". Always good for a laugh.

Fox News is an embarrassment to all news stations. They're horribly biased and, when nothing is going on, they revert back to flash-but-no-substance celebrity stories, or issues of high drama like the kidnapping/murder of attractive young blonds. Don't get me started on the ridiculous amount of commercials.

CNN is also obviously biased, but at least they report news most of the time.

You're right, however all of these networks (CNN, MSNBC, FOX NEWS) are all after ratings. People are much more likely to tune in to something that excites them not something that sounds one of their professors. I have no interest in hearing McCain speak, but I do think it's unfair that he doesn't get equal time. When the networks are after viewers, though, they're going to go with what's going to get them and right now, that's Obama.

QFMFTx 1,000,000,000,000. I've always wondered why Nancy Grace isn't on FOX News. Her show would fit in much better there.

I flipped over to Fox (dear God), and there he was, Newt Gingrich on the phone saying that if McCain continued to be the same old "dull Republican", they would get killed in November.

That might explain why few people care to see him on TV.

I found it amazing just how absolutely shithouse the US news media is when I was there. It's one thing here when we occasionally cross for live feeds and I can read their websites and such. It's another to have that totally dominant. I never thought I'd wish for Australia's Channels 7, 9, or 10, but goodness, I did. Fox just made me break out into fits of laughter, and all of the channels were dreadful.

See, there isn't anything wrong with celebrity gossip. However....Fox News should really get TMZ on their side.

Don't worry, it's a common reaction.
