Please provide examples of this.

I'm getting tired of the "some people here on FYM" claims that are never backed up and usually end up being untrue. I don't ever remember anyone here ignoring "allegations" of Clinton's cheating - it seems that everyone has pretty much accepted them as fact.

In fact I don't even ever remember there being a discussion about it, although there have been several regarding Hillary and her response to it. I do remember a common thread then being that it is Hillary's business if she took him back. Some people disagreed, because they could never see themselves forgiving him. My personal view is that she may have very well done it for political expediency. Or she did it because as she herself stated in her book, "he's the only man who ever understood me." Or it was a huge deal the first time, but the 20th time didn't make much of a difference - if you have accepted that he is a philanderer and will never change, but you live knowing that he does at least come home to you (I have an aunt like this). Whichever of these cases is true, who cares? It's between them. That doesn't mean I "ignore" his philandering; I certainly wouldn't put up with it. But she did and that's none of our business.

So I may be wrong about FYMers here ignoring "allegations" - but please at least point out who you are talking about.

spy photo?

How did they get those photos- are they paying her?


<b>THE PHOTOS EVERYONE'S BEEN WAITING FOR!</b> - Celebrity News | Gossip - National Enquirer

The NATIONAL ENQUIRER is releasing the photograph that the world has been waiting for – the first-ever picture of John Edwards and his love child!

The stunning “spy photo” shows the former presidential contender holding his infant daughter Frances Quinn Hunter at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles – where the ENQUIRER caught him visiting the baby’s mother, his mistress Rielle Hunter.

Edwards is holding his love child while standing in front of a distinctive striped curtain.

The same window covering hangs in each one of the hotel’s guest rooms – and is clearly visible in photos of guest rooms on the hotel’s Web site.

“These photos are damning proof,” said a source close to the situation.

“He’s been caught lying about his affair with Rielle and their love child for many months – and now the proof against him is piling up.

“His elaborate coverup is unraveling at the seams.”

Why-you weren't waiting for it? I heard the entire country of Germany shut down in anticipation.

Welcome to AnnCoulter.com

The mainstream media's reaction to the National Enquirer's reports on John Edwards' "love child" scandal has been reminiscent of the Soviet press. Edwards' name has simply been completely whitewashed out of the news. Say, why isn't anyone talking about John Edwards for vice president anymore?

I suspect that if I tried to look up coverage of the Democratic primaries in Nexis news archives, Edwards' name will have disappeared from the debates. By next week, Edwards won't have been John Kerry's running mate in 2004.

Do you know what this means? At this precise moment in time, I could call Edwards a name that would send me to rehab, and the media wouldn't be able to report it!

Could she come up with vast coverage of him being a possible vice-presidential candidate before?
After he left the primaries there was only mentioning of him being a possible pick for a week or so, since then, when this affair was completely not an issue, every other name was discussed, not his.

By Mark Johnson | Charlotte Observer

With two weeks to go before their national convention, a number of Democrats are saying that Edwards needs to publicly address National Enquirer stories that have alleged he had an affair with a campaign worker and fathered her baby.

If Edwards fails to clear up the story in short order, he risks party officials deciding not to have him speak or, if they do, creating a distraction from a week focused on Barack Obama accepting the nomination.

"If there is not an explanation that’s satisfactory, acceptable and meets high moral standards, the answer is 'no,' he would not be a prime candidate to make a major address to the convention," said Don Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chair.

"He absolutely does have to (resolve it). If it's not true, he has to issue a stronger denial," said Gary Pearce, the Democratic strategist who ran Edwards’ 1998 Senate race. "It's a very damaging thing. …

"The big media has tried to be responsible and handle this with kid gloves, but it's clearly getting ready to bust out. If it's not true, he's got to stand up and say, 'This is not true. That is not my child and I'm going to take legal action against the people who are spreading these lies.' It's not enough to say, 'That’s tabloid trash,' " Pearce said.

Edwards' political currency declines with each day the story goes unresolved, Fowler and other Democratic strategists said.

Wait, wait.

You mean to tell me that this media, who so SCRUPULOUSLY covered the build up to the Iraq War and so carefully examined Bush's agenda, is selectively reporting on another matter? And the right is suddenly all "oh noes the media is so delinquent and purposely hiding something!" Honestly.

I was always wondering why Edwards was really never seen as a serious VP candidate. Ann Coulter is out to pasture (not that this is unique) because he faded immediately. Whatever truth may be to this matter, if there is, I speculate that Obama's team was told or knew about it. Because Edwards was the one very conspicuously missing candidate for VP.

Hi Pearl,

You are a very young woman.

( I am about twice your age. )


What do you think is the likelihood of something like this happening to you?

This just posted on CNN.com's Political Ticker:



Breaking: Edwards admits lying about affair
Posted: 03:05 PM ET
(CNN) – John Edwards said Friday he had lied about his affair with a film-maker throughout his presidential campaign, according to ABC News.

He also said he had not fathered the 5-month-old child of Rielle Hunter, 42, although he also said he had not taken a paternity test.

In a Nightline interview set to air tonight, Edwards said he knew he was not the father because of the timing of the birth. His former aide Andrew Young has claimed paternity.

Last month, he told reporters that he had not been lying during his presidential bid when he denied having a relationship with Hunter. "I have no idea what you are asking about I have responded to consistently to these tabloid allegations by saying I don't respond to these lies," said Edwards.
