So, there was a three-ish day media frenzy on this. The video on YouTube has been watched almost 1m times. It was rebroadcast hundreds of times. Whoopi Goldberg defended John McCain on The View to a bunch of liberal women.
CNN rebroadcast the exchange repeatedly, as they tried to smear him. Including John McCain saying that he was beating Hillary in the polls.
Isn’t that a win?
Oh, and AOL viewers thought that John McCain handled it well by a 2-1 margin.
And, on a side note, for the guys wondering about where the eyeballs are on the internet, I thought this, from the YouTube page was a compelling statistic:
311045 clicks from http://news.aol.com/elections/story/_a/question-puts…14235 clicks from http://news.aol.com/?feature=200711140919099900028548 clicks from http://tpmelectioncentral.com/2007/11/full_video_mcc…6297 clicks from http://news.aol.com/elections/story/_a/question-puts…2077 clicks from http://news.aol.com/
Nuff said? AOL had 40x the next source of eyeballs. Doesn’t that mean something?
