"McCain’s confession: ‘I love to bash the media all the time.’"

On Wednesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that he “do[es] not complain about the media” even though he and his presidential campaign have been doing nothing but complaining about and attacking the media in recent weeks. Yet one day later, during a town hall meeting yesterday in Denver, McCain confessed that not only does he attack the media, but he enjoys it:

MCCAIN: I do believe that there are many occasions where the nature of the media is to exaggerate things and perhaps not be as accurate as we would like them to be. [...] I love to bash the media all the time.

Watch it:

Now that McCain has let the truth out, perhaps reporters shouldn’t be expecting an invitation to the next McCain family barbecue.
