Pinkerton: MRC Got it Right on McCain
FOX NEWS WATCH PANELIST JIM PINKERTON: The mainstream media said "[McCain's] toast because of the Iraq war. In fact, he's toast because of the immigration bill, and it was only the MRC that caught that, saying the real thing that hurt him with the Republican base, the people in the primaries, was immigration and not Iraq.

MRC [NewsBusters' parent organization] had made the point in its CyberAlert of July 11, Nets Blame Stance on Iraq, Not Immigration, for McCain's Setbacks.This NewsBuster has written along similar lines on a number of occasions, including this item from Wednesday, 'Today' Blames McCain Implosion on War Support; Rollins Tells It Like It Is, where I observed:
If I hear one more MSM outlet ascribe the implosion of John McCain's candidacy to his support for the war in Iraq, I'm going to scream.

MRC/NB: bringing our readers spot-on analysis they won't get at the MSM. Kudos to Pinkerton for pointing it out.
