(CNN) –Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential nominee John McCain, criticized the media at a weekend fundraiser, telling supporters that the hosts of The View “picked our bones clean.”
"In spite of what you see …in the newspapers, and on shows like The View - I don't know if any of you saw The View yesterday, they picked our bones clean - in spite of what you see, that's not what the American people are saying and what they are believing," said McCain, in a recording obtained by ABC News. "They are now seeing a clear difference with these candidates, and they are seeing who is going to make the best president, and that's why we're pulling ahead."

John McCain had a tough exchange with the hosts of The View during a recent appearance, during which he was pressed on the credentials of running mate Sarah Palin, claims in his campaign ads that co-host Joy Behar called “lies,” and how many houses he and his wife own.

The only reasom McCain is pulling ahead is because of the Palin phenomenon.
We need MORE journalism, not less, Cindy. Sorry about the tough questions and all.
The McCains love to lie
WAHHHHHHHH, I'm a McCain and I can't take tough questions, everyone feel sorry for us!
If it walks like a liar. And it talks like a liar. I think it's safe to call it a liar. McCain/Palin lie. They're liars.
They can dish it but they can't take it.
Does the truth hurt, Cindy? Can't your man take it like a man?
Cindy McCain is delusional. Her husband is a liar. His new name should be McSleaze.
mccain is of the same we need a change in washington and the whole world agrees with that
Who cares how many houses they own? It's the issues they should be talking about not houses.
My vote is for McCain!
WHY SHE IS SO ANGRY? THE TRUTH HURTS
You'll see, when McCain loses, Cindy will blame God also.
Go away, Ms. $300,000 convention outfit. You haven't a clue.
shut up home wrecker....that will be cindy.
wah! wah! wha!
I think Hillary Clinton's call to arms should be: "No way, no McCain, no Pain."
Darlin Cindy, please go back to the rock that you and Gov. Air-Head crawled out from under.
Maybe the media isn't being hard enough. You know their lying is bad when Rove calls them on it!!
McCain lied his way through the tough questions!
i like Mccain-it's that palin that grates on my last nerve!!!!! i will never vote for Palin!
Wellllll ... your husband shouldn't be lying on his ads. Deal with it.
Please hush up, Cindy. You are married to a cynical liar...and he was exposed for the trashy campaign he is willing to run. He has completed the sale of his soul.
Yeah, Cindy McCain lying about the lies!
Apparently people didn't hear Dennis Kucinich
