Ignoring the Non-Anonymous Sources

CNN reports what the NY Times doesn’t:

Dan Schnur, McCain’s communication director during his 2000 presidential bid, told CNN on Thursday that he was involved in most high-level situations and that such a problem almost certainly would have “landed on my desk.”
Schnur said that he was unaware of any “improper” relationship between the senator and Iseman and that he had never heard of any meeting with staffers and McCain about such a concern.
Schnur, a professor of political science at the University of California-Berkeley, has no connection to the McCain camp now.
Schnur said he spoke on the record with a Times reporter in December and said he knew of no problems surrounding Iseman. He said he was surprised the paper gave no hint of his views.
