MSM darling vs. MSM messiah

During the GOP primary season, some Republicans seemed to think John McCain would be able to take advantage of the media's "Maverick" crush in the general election campaign. Quin Hillyer ain't buying:
The media darling McCain is going to be in for a bumpy ride now that his opponent is Obama, the media savior who makes the commentariat feel warm tingles run up their legs. The media will throw over a darling for a messiah every time.
Quin links an Amanda Carpenter column about Washington Post coverage of an Arizona land deal in which the reporter tries to make McCain look as sleazy as Hedley Lamarr from Blazing Saddles.
