    McCain Camp Fires Back at Times for Cindy McCain Story

    McCain camp outraged at New York Times story addressing Cindy McCain's past painkiller addiction, questions why the paper hasn't investigated Barack Obama's youthful drug use

    John McCain's campaign is expressing outrage over a New York Times story that focuses on Cindy McCain's marriage to the Arizona senator, including her miscarriages, her past addiction to painkillers and her failure in Washington to fit in.

    The campaign's outrage comes on the heels of a letter Cindy McCain's attorney, John Dowd, wrote earlier this month to New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller a letter earlier this month accusing him of biased coverage for not pursuing more information about Obama's personal life.

    "It is worth noting that you have not employed your investigative assets looking into Michelle Obama," Dowd wrote in the letter, which the campaign has made public now in response to the latest report by the Times.

    "You have not tried to find Barack Obama's drug dealer that he wrote about in his book, 'Dreams of My Father,'" he continued. "Nor have you interviewed his poor relatives in Kenya and determined why Barack Obama has not rescued them. Thus there is a terrific lack of balance here."


    The McCain camp provided the letter to FOX News on Saturday, the same day the piece was published. In addition to the missive, the McCain released a scathing critique of the story, calling it "gutter journalism at its worst -- an unprecedented attack on a presidential candidate's spouse."

    The statement also condemns New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, who co-wrote the feature, for e-mailing a 16-year-old friend of the McCain's youngest child, seeking more information on Cindy McCain.

    "The New York Times has stooped lower than this campaign ever imagined possible in an attempt to discredit a woman whose only apparent sin is being married to the man that would oppose that paper's preferred candidate, Barack Obama, in his quest for the presidency," McCain campaign spokesman Michael Goldfarb wrote in the statement released today.

    "It is a black mark on the record of a paper that was once widely respected, but is now little more than a propaganda organ for the Democratic party," he added. "The New York Times has accused John McCain of running a dishonorable campaign, but today it is plain to see where the real dishonor lies."

    Kantor declined to comment when reached by FOXNews.com. A New York Times spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    The NYTimes is no longer taken seriously by any moderate. It is a liberal rag without any veracity. It has to recant so many items it isn't even funny.

    It's really really starting to irritate me how biased the media is against John McCain, his wife and Sarah Palin. It's like thier main goal is to spread hate against the Republican party. Im not voting for McCain, but I really think it's so very unfair. Sickening, actually.

    propaganda organ for the Democratic party
    "Organ" Te hehehehe.

    We don't hear the Democrats shouting for the "Fairness" Doctrine right now do we.

    I can take any one of my aquantances and spin up a tale about their lives too. I'm really sick of this culture of spin and "reality" TV.

    This is what bugs me the most. When reporters use kids! Hope the kids parents have those emails and make them public.

    The evil of the liberal newspapers, so concentrated in the New York Times, is showing their true horns now.
