Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud former ABC News anchor Ted Koppel’s critique of the media and appreciate that at least one veteran journalist has the courage to speak out on liberal bias in the news. They also take President Trump to task for attacking the late Sen. John McCain in a series of immature tweets and public statements. And they predict former Vice President Joe Biden won’t endear himself to progressives if reports are true that he’s planning to name former Georgia Rep. Stacey Abrams his running mate in 2020.

    McCain’s overly dramatic thumbs down no vote on Repeal/Replace ObamaCare legislation, whether or not it was to get back at Trump, had real effects on real people. He may have stuck it to Trump, but he also stuck it to millions of Americans whose healthcare options and costs shouldn’t have depended on whether McCain was feeling petty that day. I haven’t trusted McCain as a politician since his free speech chilling McCain/Feingold Act (a.k.a. the Incumbent Protection Act) back in the ’90s, and the more I learn of things like the thumbs down vote, his role in legitimizing the Steele dossier, and involvement in harassing Tea Party groups with the IRS and Lois Lerner, his legacy to me is…well, I’ll just say that I’m not a fan.

    I never understood John McCain. Most veterans are very careful with military deployments – but McCain never heard a campaign he didnt support – if not want to expand. He seemed to be more reckless than the average senator.
