In 2008 the liberal mainstream media did everything they could to denigrate and slander John McCain and lift Barack Obama into the White House.
Despite the fact that McCain was a weak candidate that didn’t stop the media from slandering him as a racist and Islamophobe.
Via Teen Vogue:
According to a 2000 San Francisco Gate report, McCain, who spent 5 and half years in a North Vietnamese prison camp during the Vietnam War, referred to his captors as “g**ks” when speaking with reporters at a press conference.
The left accused him of racism for comparing Iranian President Ahmadinejad to a monkey.
So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn't he just there last week? "Iran launches monkey into space" http://t.co/PaZKAqac

And later the Huffington Post accused him of leading racists and anti-semites.
More hatred from the liberal media.

A TIME Magazine photographer in 2008 purposely adjusted the light on candidate McCain to make him look old as death.
