Maverick straight talker John McCain lies to Newsweek, and neither Newsweek nor Drudgico notices.

Newsweek has an interview with McCain in this week's mag and they've posted excerpts from the Jon Meacham and Holly Bailey chat online.

I missed this, but McCain apparently killed a line at the start of his speech Tuesday in which he was to say of Hillary Clinton that, "The media often overlooked how compassionately she spoke to the concerns and dreams of millions of Americans, and she deserves a lot more appreciation than she sometimes received."

As commenters point out, McCain did in fact say it.
