The New York Times’s slathering praise for John McCain rings false

Roger Kimball, The Spectator

The Times is perfectly willing, nay eager, to celebrate the memory of John McCain. After all, his most conspicuous activities these past few years have been as an anti-Trump activist. But back in the day, the Times was quick to put John McCain in his place just as soon has he tried to abandon his role as a ‘maverick,’ i.e., unreliable, but essentially pro-Democratic, trouble maker. Like Dewar’s Scotch, the Times has this to be said for it: it never varies.
