McCain Story: Who Knew What When?

capt.688e793e45884ead8e5c870bae99f10f.mccain_2008_scmc103.jpgKnow the adage that when the media start reporting on themselves, the story is over? How quickly, then, did this story of McCain’s alleged improprieties with a lobbyist evaporate:

HuffPo takes on the New York Times (kinda), questioning (but never answering) why the paper dragged its feet.

U.S. News reminds us all that Drudge had the story first.

Jon Stewart reminds Larry King that dirty politics is icky.
