More Than Personal

The Virginian-Pilot reminds us that the John McCain-Pat Robertson feud is more than personal: “Pique might be one reason Christian conservative Pat Robertson isn’t backing Sen. John McCain’s bid for the presidency: McCain labeled him an ‘agent of intolerance’ during a 2000 speech in Virginia Beach. But as a Christian broadcaster, Robertson may also balk at McCain’s championship of pay-per-channel cable television, a format that could slash the market for faith-based programming. Robertson, who could not be reached for comment, heads the Christian Broadcasting Network, based in Virginia Beach.”
