Matching CBS on Tuesday night, on Wednesday evening ABC’s World News followed its exclusive Barack Obama session of the day with a shorter interview segment with John McCain as anchor Charles Gibson teased: “Barack Obama, here in Israel, holding meetings at breakneck speed on the Middle East conflict.” Obama got a full five minutes with anchor Charles Gibson in Israel, not counting a glowing minute-long introduction — Obama’s “schedule here in Israel looked like a Middle East shuttle mission” — while ABC allocated two-and-a-half minutes to David Wright with McCain. Gibson did press Obama on his foreign policy “inexperience” and Obama’s declaration that “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel,” wondering if that was “a rookie mistake?” Wright began by scolding McCain for his “extraordinary statement” that “Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.” Wright demanded: “Do you really think he’s that craven?” Bizarrely, as if the media’s decisions are not primarily responsible, Wright told McCain the fact that “the narrative of this campaign is being driven by whatever Senator Obama does” shows a McCain campaign failure.  For the rest of the article:  ABC Scolds McCain & Admits Obama Driving the Campaign ‘Narrative’
