A Note to Readers: February 20, 2009
An article published on February 21, 2008, about Senator John McCain and his record as an ethics reformer who was at times blind to potential conflicts of interest included references to Vicki Iseman, a Washington lobbyist. The article did not state, and The Times did not intend to conclude, that Ms. Iseman had engaged in a romantic affair with Senator McCain or an unethical relationship on behalf of her clients in breach of the public trust.
Note the date: One month after Barack Obama was inaugurated! Bill Keller and company might just as well have published an announcement: "We did all we could to help our preferred candidate win. Now that he's won and the point is moot, remember those innuendos we published about McCain? Never mind."
