For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: what will come of Andrea Mitchell's "cheating" statement on "Meet the Press" yesterday?
By now, you've certainly heard that NBC's Andrea Mitchell told viewers the Obama campaign felt John McCain had somehow cheated during the presidential forum Saturday. As this wasn't the first time Mitchell shilled for Obama, the McCain campaign has requested a meeting with NBC News president Steve Capus to discuss this matter, as well as NBC's clearly biased election coverage.
Do you think this is a good move by McCain? Is anything going to come of this? Is Mitchell going to have to explain her behavior, or will she get a pass? What will Capus's response be? Might McCain's "working the refs" strategy have an impact on NBC's coverage moving forward? Might it impact other media outlets' coverage? Any other thoughts?
