McCain Helped by NYT Attack

By Rick Pearcey

Sen. John McCain may want to thank the New York Times for its attack story "For McCain, Self-Confidence on Ethics Poses Its Own Risk." The story hit the net last night and the papers today.

I have read the Times report and watched coverage of this story by Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, as well as the response of McCain lawyer Bob Bennett on Hannity & Colmes.

The explosive charge of a possible romantic relationship between McCain and lobbyist Vicki Iseman is not substantiated, in my view.

This does not mean it didn’t happen; it does mean the Times has taken an unfair swipe at McCain and thereby justly suffers another blow to its credibility.
