So much for straight talk

Now, John McSame is lying on the TV

WALTERS: What is she going to reform specifically, senator?

MCCAIN: Well, first of all, earmark spending, which she vetoed a half a billion dollars worth
in the state of Alaska.

WALTERS: She also took some earmarks there.

BEHAR: A lot.

MCCAIN: No, not as governor she didn’t, she vetoed…

WALTERS: As Mayor.

MCCAIN: Well, look, the fact is that she was a reform governor.
Seems, the old Arizonian doesn't quite understand that that everything he says can be fact checked in seconds thanks to the magic of the internet.

And why didn't uber liberal Barbara Walters string him up? Why is she playing footsie? Why didn't she say: "With all due respect, Senator, that's just not true. She did seek earmarks as a governor, specifically for projects X, Y and Z." This could have been Walters moment. It was her change to regain some relevance and some credibility as a journalist, but with the way our so-called liberal media is trending, I suppose being McCain's towel girl is a better career option.
