Priceless: Dowd gets the boot from McCain
Maureen Dowd: Kicked off campaign
Add Maureen Dowd, the Pulitzer-winning columnist for the NY Times, to the list of media types who have fallen out bitterly with John McCain. The McCain campaign has barred her from flying in the McCain and Palin press planes, even though major media outlets routinely pay thousands to the campaigns every day for travel and expenses (and also begs the question, why didn't her media colleagues Man Up and get her aboard anyway?)
Something Ms. Dowd seems to not understand about the First Amendment. She has every right to be the pompous self-righteous *** that she is. Its our First Amendment right not to have to listen to it. Its McCain's First Amendment Right not to have to put up with it on his plane.
