ABC News' Jake Tapper, a former reporter for Salon, commenting on the McCain campaign's "Obama Love" video:

[I]f there's any senator who has benefited from a generally friendly media it's McCain. His opponents in 2000 and 2008, his senate colleagues, and Democrats have been complaining for years that the media gives McCain a free ride.

This is like Britney Spears complaining that the hype around Miley Cyrus far exceeds her talent.
