The news is abuzz this morning with a statement from the McCain-Palin campaign claiming that the mainstream media is working on behalf of the Obama-Biden ticket. The McCain-Palin campaign has accused the Los Angeles Times of “intentionally suppressing” a videotape from 2003, of a farewell dinner for Rashid Khalidi, which Barack Obama attended.
Because the facts seem to be getting lost in the fabricated, eleventh hour brouhaha, here’s a link to the L.A. Times’ response to the McCain-Palin campaign’s accusation.
And here is the L.A. Times’ original report on the evening, published April 10, 2008.
UPDATE: Seth Colter Walls reports on The Huffington Post, that while John McCain was chairman of the International Republican Institute, the group funded “several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars”.
Shall we move on now?
