Chicago Tribune Ignores McCain Flip-Flop on Immigration
The Chicago Tribune's Jill Zuckman asserted that Sen. John McCain "has a considerable record" as a "maverick" and cited his partnership with Democrats on immigration legislation, among other issues. But Zuckman did not mention that McCain reversed his position on immigration reform to appeal to Republican primary voters and no longer supports the comprehensive immigration reform legislation he sponsored with Sen. Edward Kennedy. See this report at Media Matters for America.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Chicago Tribune Ignores McCain Flip-Flop on Immigration:
Has McCain flipped on CIR, or is he just underplaying his position?
Earlier this year in an interview with Tim Russert, he asked McCain whether he had abandoned his support of CIR. McCain did not answer, instead quickly stating that the public needs assurance that the borders have been secured, etc.
Given his need to shore up support from his party, his dodge on immigration reform is understandable.
