Double Standard

From FOXNews Political Grapevine:

"There seems to be a notable difference in coverage by The New York Times when it comes to the presidential candidates' medical history.

The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto points out a Times' editorial early last month called for the contenders to fully disclose their medical records. Three weeks later John McCain released a 1,000 page file to reporters. He also made his personal doctors available for questions during a scheduled 90 minute conference call that was cut to 45 minutes after questions stopped.

The Times' headline read: "Tight Control on McCain Files and Shortened Question Period."

But when Barack Obama released a one page written statement from his doctor last Friday, the banner was a bit different:

"Obama's Doctor, Praising His Health, Sees No Obstacles to Service."
