What Media Bias - LA Times Edition

The big news you won't hear on the news this week is that John Edwards was caught running around with his mistress and love child. Oddly enough, no major media outlet is covering it. You will only see this in the Enquirer and on the blogosphere. Given the sensitivity of something like this, the LA Times has ordered its bloggers not to cover it.
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.
