The McCain story itself becomes the story

Things have been happening fast since the New York Times released its story on presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) last night. And the who, what, when, why, and how of the story itself seems to be garnering more attention than the senator.

Gabe Sherman at The New Republic discusses in fascinating detail the development of the story, opening a window into the machinations of American political journalism. A good read if you want to know how big stories evolve.
