New York Times Calls McCain "Exonerated" In Keating Five Scandal Charges

The New York Times used the word "exonerated" in describing the final verdict on Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain's involvement. From a November 21, 1999, story in the NYT:

    During a 14-month Senate ethics investigation that ended with [McCain's] exoneration, he and four other senators stood accused of exerting improper influence by meeting with federal bank regulators on behalf of Mr. Keating, who had contributed $1.5 million to the political causes and campaigns of the senators, including $112,000 to Mr. McCain.


    "I found nothing in my investigation which caused me to question Senator McCain's integrity," said Robert Bennett, the Washington lawyer who was special counsel to the ethics panel during what is called the Keating Five investigation.

Exonerated. The NYT would never lie. It's the uber-Liberal publication that tells no lies, according to the Dems.
