Cotton Hill McCain and Co. seem to think so...
[Editor's Note: Apparently the McCain Campaign pulled the very ad they put up themselves when there was a backlash. Thanks to the magic of YouTube, it's still out there. For now. Watch this astounding example of whining hateration before it gets completely pulled from the internet.]
John McCain's 'Obama Love' fund-raising video was a hit on the web this week, so it's a surprise to find that it's been zapped from the campaign's YouTube channel.The official campaign spin is that this was a copyright issue with the song featured in this video. You and I know better.
According to Unruly Media's viral video tracking service, the McCain campaign's 'Obama Love' video was the hottest presidential candidate viral video on the web this week.
Nevertheless, the video has been removed from YouTube. The fund-raising videos also appear to have also been removed from the campaign's web site.
Unruly Media reports that the video has been viewed almost 260,000 times since its release Tuesday.
That makes it one of the McCain campaign's most successful viral videos to date.
Question: We'll discuss this in depth later in the week, but do you think the media is in love with Obama? If so, why?]
