L.A. Times Responds To Accusations of “Suppressing”
In response to the McCain campaign’s claims that the Los Angeles Times is “intentionally suppressing” a potentially damaging videotape of Barack Obama, the Times’ Jamie Gold makes a point that should be obvious:
“More than six months ago the Los Angeles Times published a detailed account of the events shown on the videotape. The Times is not suppressing anything. Just the opposite – the L.A. Times brought the matter to light.“
It’s a bit strange for John McCain to suggest that the Times is guilty of “media bias,” and for Sarah Palin to accuse the newspaper of “kowtowing” to Obama, when it was the Times who exposed this story in the first place. In publishing the story, the Times didn’t do Obama any favors. And anyone who wishes to see that story, including its detailed account of the video, can easily find it here at latimes.com.Click here for reuse options!
