I had an interesting discussion on WLS/Chicago this morning with Joe Strupp of Editor & Publisher about the NY Times turning down an op-ed from John McCain one week after it published a similar piece by Barack Obama.

This is accruing to McCain’s benefit. It was good that the Times printed his op-eds in the past, but at this point in the campaign, it’s even better for McCain that they refused it. Of course, if this were reversed — the Wall Street Journal refusing to print an Obama op-ed — the politics would flip completely.
