Old media dethroned - Los Angeles Times: "When John Edwards admitted Friday that he lied about his affair with filmmaker Rielle Hunter, a former employee of his campaign, he may have ended his public life but he certainly ratified an end to the era in which traditional media set the agenda for national political journalism."
The tabloids and the blogs and AM talk radio had the truth and they printed the truth. And the "traditional media," meaning print media and tv networks, had the truth and decided to withhold it from the public. Why? To protect the Democratic party. Edwards was, until yesterday, on Obama's short list for VP.
If the affair and love child had been Mitt Romney's, this story would have been front page news since 2006.
