You Got to Be Kidding Me!

It’s Not News, It’s…

Andrew Sullivan on why the press is blacking out the John Edwards love child story:

Mickey makes his case for an unsqueamish press. I think the reason the MSM is leery of this story is because someone else has actually claimed to be the father of the child in question and because Elizabeth Edwards is extremely sick, and this story would be an horribly traumatizing question for a cancer patient to deal with. And there’s enough to this story already to bar any near-future public office for Edwards.

So, yes, occasionally the press is humane. Sometimes, that’s a good thing.

I mean, come on. The story may or may not be true, but it’s awfully convenient that the MSM has grown its new conscience over a story concerning a likely Obama VP nominee (check the LA Times’ priceless silencing of its bloggers) and not, say, Larry Craig.
