New Group Criticizes McCain

Progressive Media USA (PMUSA), a new group fronted by former conservative David Brock, has launched an anti-John McCain site called McCainSource.com.

McCainSource features online-only productions, such as this video marking the fifth annivesary since President Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech:

The site also mixes humor with criticism. "Pop Up Double Talk," for example, is inspired by VH1's "Pop Up Video."

"We want to get the facts out about Senator McCain and other Conservatives' policy positions -- with a twist of pop culture fun," said PMUSA spokeswoman Tara McGuinness. This episode is about McCain's health care proposals:

PMUSA launched last month with an ad in Ohio that criticized John McCain's comments on the economy.

McCainSource.com is another example of so-called "fact check" sites that post arguments and talking points for or against a candidate or cause. The Democratic and Republican parties both operate such sites, as do Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
