McCNN thrusts the propaganda

Obama believes his own hype, McCNN tells us. Problem is, if you read the full quote instead of the misleading Republican bullshit, the truth is the opposite:

"His entire point of that riff was that the campaign IS NOT about him. The Post left out the important first half of the sentence, which was something along the lines of: 'It has become increasingly clear in my travel, the campaign, that the crowds, the enthusiasm, 200,000 people in Berlin, is not about me at all. It's about America. I have just become a symbol ... ." (emphasis added)
Oh, this is going to get worse. Our press corps is so fucked up that they don't even care about what's true, and the Republicans are always unconscionably eager to exploit that fact.

Update: Yet another McCNN story about a scurrilous McCain attack ad, complete with the repetitions of debunked stories that paint Obama in the McCain campaign's smearing light.
