As the general election finally gets underway, it is time for America to learn a little more about John McCain than the "war hero," "maverick," and "straight talk express" nicknames. If you're not a watcher of Countdown with Keith Olbermann, this clip might show you why I like it so much. Sure, it's got a leftward bent, but it is proof by being an exception to the rule that--by and large--we do not have a liberal media. If we did, there wouldn't be any special notice taken of the show by FOX "News" and other conservative voices.
Here, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow discuss John McCain at this point in the campaign. Leftward leaning yes, but fair, entertaining and informative. Watch.
