Who says the media is in the tank for Obama? I mean MSNBC only let the most vicious political ad to date run for two days and then, and only then, did they figure out it wasn’t vetted properly. Hey, only a few million people saw it: (h/t Newsbusters)

“The ad had not been thoroughly vetted prior to air, and has since been removed from our commercial rotation,” NBC spokeswoman Allison Gollust said in an e-mail, but did not elaborate, according to the AP.

The ad featured Dr. Michael D. Fratkin telling the viewer that “Another bout of cancer for John McCain while he’s president of the United States would profoundly impact his capacity to lead.”

This is the same man who called for McCain to release his medical records on Obama’s website AFTER McCain had already released them:

In May, McCain provided 1,173 pages of medical documents to a small group of reporters to examine for several hours, but the campaign did not release the documents and reporters were not allowed to make copies. The records, which covered McCain’s health history from 2000-2008, showed that he had his last episode of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, six years ago.

The records described him as having a strong heart and generally good health. He gets an in-depth skin cancer check every few months.McCain’s Democratic rival, Barack Obama, has not made his medical records public. His physician earlier this year released a one-page letter attesting to his good health.

Kinda funny the good doctor didn’t mention how Obama refused to release his medical records….
