Re: John Edwards, Baby Daddy?

Asked about the National Enquirer story, Edwards says: " "That's tabloid trash. They're full of lies. I'm here to talk about helping people."

Translation: The story is 100% take-it-to-the-bank true. As Byron York notes, the Enquirer probably paid sources to get the story, but the reporting looks solid. If the account of him being caught in a hotel rendezvous with Rielle Hunter was false, Edwards wouldn't be changing the subject, he'd be suing.

Mickey Kaus, who's been all over the Edwards-Hunter story from the beginning, wonders if the mainstream media can continue to ignore this story.
