Meghan McCain has tried to milk her fifteen minutes of fame by courting controversy. First, Ms. McCain took an up front role for her father, Senator John McCain (R-AZ), during his Maverick 2008 Presidential campaign. Then Meghan allowed herself to be used as a youthful go to GOP dissenting voice for the media during much of the Obama Administration. Eventually, Meghan landed a gig with MSNBC where she revealed herself, or at least her intellectual level.
Instead of being content to get a media gig as a legacy with the Lamestream Media, Meghan McCain is driven to the spotlight, much like a moth to a flame. So Ms. McCain recently played Twenty Questions with Playboy. If the mere act of consenting to an interview with Playboy did not burnish her burgeoning reputation of already being a big boob, consider a couple of her answers.
David Hockman asked on behalf of Playboy’s “readers” asked Meghan to imagine life if her father had won his quest for the Presidency. Meghan answered honestly: You would have the craziest first daughter ever, who’d be making ridiculous headlines and hurting the administration every step of the way.”. No wonder why the Lamestream Media lionized her as the youth spokesman for the GOP before she joined MessNBC (sic.).
Moreover, Meghan tried to gin up publicity by denying that she was a lesbian, even though no one suggested that she was. Meghan confessed:
I’m not a lesbian, if that’s what you’re asking. I’d be the first person to tell the world I was gay. I’m not private about anything. I think you should live how you should live. But I’m strictly dickly. I can’t help it. I love sex and I love men. [Emphasis added].
Very revealing. But is it appropriate for a reputable reporter, a political pundit or even a kid who cares about her father’s reputation?
Unlike the progressive media campaign to rush Limbaugh off the airwaves for controversial subjects, there is no need to make Meghan a media martyr. But what do you call a public figure who feels compelled to make headlines with catchy but stupid quips. After the Fluke Flap, let’s just call her a “Publicity Hound”. Between Meghan McCain's reporting debut, her titillating Twitter Tweets and her self indulgent game of Twenty Questions, news junkies can make appropriate judgments about the quality of journalism at MSNBC.
