Comedy gold: New Media Matters ad hits press for being in the tank for ... McCain

So unspeakably lame is this that I can’t even work up a good head of schadenfreude over it. Suffice it to say, had this come from a right-wing group, yet another tedious round of self-congratulation about how much funnier liberals are than conservatives would already be in full swing on left. Even so, I think it’s my favorite ad of the campaign thus far, simply for the juxtaposition with this bit of data from the Opinion Dynamics poll last week. Who are you going to believe, Media Matters or your lying eyes?

Give ’em credit for digging up the video clips in the word bubble, though: It’s not easy finding mentions of McCain on air these days. By all means, hold that media accountable.
