Barack Obama (Democrat)

Recently, the New York Times ran an editorial by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Republican presidential candidate John McCain submitted one as well and it was rejected and subsequently no published.

McCain cried foul, claiming a media bias, then contacted Drudge Report asking that it be posted there:

NYT REJECTS MCCAIN’S EDITORIAL; SHOULD ‘MIRROR’ OBAMA

Mon Jul 21 2008 12:00:25 ET – An editorial written by Republican presidential hopeful McCain has been rejected by the NEW YORK TIMES — less than a week after the paper published an essay written by Obama, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The paper’s decision to refuse McCain’s direct rebuttal to Obama’s ‘My Plan for Iraq’ has ignited explosive charges of media bias in top Republican circles.

‘It would be terrific to have an article from Senator McCain that mirrors Senator Obama’s piece,’ NYT Op-Ed editor David Shipley explained in an email late Friday to McCain’s staff. ‘I’m not going to be able to accept this piece as currently written.’
