What Media Bias - LA Times Edition
There has been a little buzz surrounding John Edwards and his alleged affair. Because the only source has been the National Enquirer we have decided not to cover the rumors or salacious speculations. So I am asking you all not to blog about this topic until further notified.Okay, so they question the source and have decided not to cover it. I can respect that, if they apply that same standard to everyone.
But what's this The LA Times made quite a big deal about a rumor that John McCain was having an in appropriate relationship with a female lobbyist.
Aides to Sen. John McCain confronted a telecommunications lobbyist in late 1999 and asked her to distance herself from the Arizona senator during the presidential campaign he was about to launch, according to one of McCain's longest-serving political strategists.So, let's review the rules, shall we?
1. Republican candidate: Fuck him, we'll run anything we can get our hands on
2. Former Democratic candidate and presumed VP front runner: I know there were witnesses who actually saw Edwards coming out of the hotel at 2:30 am where his mistress and love child were staying, but we really need to give him the benefit of the doubt. For the children.
