Negative Ads

Kirstin Powers has a column on negative McCain Ads.

"Another ad falsely accused Obama of choosing to go to the gym instead of visiting wounded troops in Germany. But Business Week reported yesterday that the McCain camp had another ad script ready to go if Obama had visited the troops - saying that he was using them as campaign props."

...which led to this article by David Kiley on negative McCain Ads. It talks a lot about the Republican attack machine and it's connection with Fox News, including this tidbit at the end:

"Scott McClellan told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews that the White House does, in fact, provide Hannity and other Fox News and on-air talent their daily and weekly policy 'talking points.' We knew that, but it’s nice to hear someone admit it who was in on the transaction."
